The questioning is in connection with alleged misappropriation of Rs 43 crore when Farooq Abdullah was the chairman of J&K Cricket Association, the sources said. The questioning on Monday is taking place in Srinagar and is based on bank documents, sources added.
Officials said the National Conference president’s statement will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) as in the past.
