Imran Asif Fazal |Oct 31, 2019

The ED officials are cross checking the facts stated by businessman Raj Kundra and will probe the matter further.

Businessman Raj Kundra and husband of actor Shilpa Shetty after being summoned by the Enforcement Directorate has said in a statement that he had no business dealings with the underworld.

Raj Kundra was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate(ED) on Wednesday for almost 9 hours. Sources in the ED revealed that Kundra was very open to investigations and has given a statement about his innocence.

However, ED officials are cross-checking the facts stated by Kundra and have asked him to present during investigations.

Raj Kundra in a statement had said, "I have never had any dealings or known personally any underworld people and its upsetting to see such names attached with mine. In 2011, I negotiated to sell a plot that I owned near the airport to RKW Developers whose director was Dheeraj Wadhawan. All my dealing and correspondence that time was with Dheeraj only. In 2013, I transferred my company Essential Hospitality that owned the plot to RKW Developers against full and final payment. No loans were taken in this company and it was completely debt-free when we sold the same to RKW."

About his business deal with Ranjeet Bindra, he said, "In March 2019, I was looking to make investments in the F&B sector. Ranjit Bindra approached me because he heard I was interested in this space with an offer to invest in his restaurant Bastian. I had been a regular patron at this popular restaurant and decided to invest in the same buying a 50% share stake along with management rights."
