Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah was questioned on Wednesday by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case involving the State cricket association funds.

ED recorded the National Conference (NC) leader's statement in its Chandigarh office.

The ED's investigation is based on an FIR registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 2015 alleging a scam involving Rs 38 crore, the report added.

The agency alleged misappropriation of funds provided by the BCCI for developing sports infrastructure and organising cricket matches.

Dr. Abdullah was the president of the cricket association.
