    Published on January 30, 2019

    The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a show cause notice to  Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in connection with an alleged foreign exchange violation case.

    Our correspondent quoting official sources reports,  the notice for violation of forex funds to the tune of  2 crore rupees has been issued under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), after the probe was completed recently.

    Mr Khan, who is popular for his renditions in India and Pakistan, has been asked to reply to the notice within 45 days.
    The probe agency initiated a FEMA investigation against him and his associates in 2014.

    The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI)  in 2011, intercepted Khan and his manager, Marrouf Ali Khan, at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi for allegedly carrying an undeclared amount of 1.24 lakh US dollars and some other instruments in foreign currency.
