THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:

Kerala

CM

Pinarayi Vijayan

on Wednesday wrote to the chief election commissioner that it is due to the interest of

Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman

that Enforcement Directorate (ED) sleuths were summoning officials of

Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board

(KIIFB) for interrogation.
He also said that the agency is not heeding to the model code and sought the intervention of the EC.
On Tuesday, the ED had registered a case against KIIFB in connection with alleged violation of the

Foreign Exchange Management Act

by the board while borrowing overseas funds.
The ED will soon question the KIIFB CEO and deputy CEO as part of the probe. It will also question senior officials of a private bank that handles the main accounts of KIIFB.
