Thank you so much,” was her brief reply to questions by told reporters after coming out of the ED’s office in the evening.

An ED official said that Jahan during the questioning was also asked about the huge loan (over Rs one crore) that she allegedly took from the company.

“She was asked how she repaid the loan. She has submitted some documents to our officers and they are being probed.


Our officers also asked her to specify the respective roles of Rakesh Singh and small-time actor Ruplekha Mitra who were co-directors in the company,” he told PTI.

ED has summoned Mitra for questioning in the same case.

The probe follows the lodging of a complaint by a group of senior citizens recently accusing a real estate company of cheating them by promising flats in the New Town area on the eastern fringes of the city.

Nusrat Jahan has denied allegations of being involved in any fraudulent practice.
