mumbai Updated: Apr 14, 2011 23:13 IST

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday grilled Bihar Congress leader Amlendu Pandey for allegedly procuring a passport from Patna for Pune based stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan, by forging documents.

The ED, which summoned Pandey to appear before it, had mentioned in its remand application that it was necessary to question Pandey regarding transactions of Khan in Singapore and also to find out the reasons for obtaining the second passport from Patna.

Khan, Pandey and Kolkata based businessman Kashinath Tapuria had allegedly travelled to Singapore in 1997 to open an account in the United Bank of Switzerland.

Khan is accused of massive money-laundering, tax evasion and stashing away huge amounts in foreign banks.
