The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday registered a money laundering case against Trinamool Congress leaders in the Narada sting operation case under PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act).

The move by ED comes just a few days after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) lodged an FIR against 12 of the party’s leaders.

“A case had been registered under PMLA and we will be serving summons to the concerned people, soon,” said a senior ED official, requesting anonymity.

Speaking at a public rally in north Bengal, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said the BJP was using the central investigating agencies -- “sometimes the CBI, sometimes the ED” -- to intimidate the Trinamool Congress because the BJP was scared that the Trinamool Congress was emerging as an influential entity in national politics.
