With former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda discharged from a Ranchi hospital on Sunday, the Enforcement Directorate has issued fresh summons to him to appear before it on November 15 in Delhi.

According to sources, the Directorate served fresh summons to Mr. Koda as the IT department has communicated to the ED officials about its move to question the former chief minister in the Rs 2,000 crore Hawala and illegal investments case.

The ED, meanwhile will interrogate Mr. Koda’s associate Vikash Sinha who would be brought to its headquarters in the national capital on a ten-day police custody.

Mr. Vikash, brother of key Koda aide Binod Sinha, would be questioned on the Hawala dealings and other money laundering activities that he carried for his brother and Mr. Koda, they said.

The ED in the fresh summons has asked Mr. Koda to bring along documents that may be needed to be produced during questioning.

Sources said the ED would closely follow Mr. Koda’s questioning by IT officials and then study both his and Mr. Vikash’s statements before interrogating the former chief minister.

Meanwhile, key Koda aides Binod Sinha and Sanjay Chowdhary, for whom the Ed has issued look-out notices are still to be traced.

Mr. Koda, who was discharged on Sunday from a hospital in Ranchi, was admitted on November 3, complaining stomach ache.
