The Lok Sabha MP from Srinagar was questioned for about three hours, an official said, declining to be named.

On May 27, the ED summoned Abdullah to its Srinagar office in connection with the money laundering case pertaining to the alleged irregularities in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA). The 84-year-old National Conference chief was JKCA president from 2001 to 2012 and the alleged financial irregularities worth 113-crore being probed by ED took place between 2004 and 2009.

Former JKCA office bearers, including general secretary Mohammed Saleem Khan and former treasurer Ahsan Ahmad Mirza, have also been booked in the case.
