Hasan case: ED officer suspended for shoddy probe

Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate has suspended an officer for allegedly conducting a shoddy probe into the Hasan Ali Khan case in 2007.

ED officer Amrinder Kumar Singh was suspended yesterday for conducting a "shoddy probe", ED sources said today.

The agency will also conduct an inquiry against Singh, they said.

The ED is likely to file a charge sheet against Khan and co-accused Kashinath Tapuriah, a Kolkata-based businessman, in a sessions court here.

Khan is accused of stashing USD eight billion in foreign banks including UBS Bank in Zurich, while Tapuriah is accused of aiding Khan.
