ED summons Swiss account holder Radha Timblo
Radha Timblo, who runs Timblo Pvt Ltd, was in the news recently after her name was revealed by the central government for having a Swiss bank account.
Officials said Timblo has been asked to report to the ED office in Panaji Nov 18.
Sources in the agency said Timblo would be grilled on issues related to under-invoicing of iron ore exported by her company, which has also been indicted by the Justice M.B. Shah commission of enquiry, which probed Goa’s Rs.35,000 crore illegal mining scam.
On Monday, ED questioned former director of mines and geology Arvind Lolienkar. The ED has also issued summons to various other mining companies which have been accused of carrying out illegal mining by the Shah Commission.
