The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a case against former Public Works Minister of Kerala and Indian Union Muslim League leader VK Ebrahim Kunju on the charges of money laundering. The Kerala High Court had ordered the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the month of November to probe in the money laundering case against the former Minister.

The leader of Indian Union Muslim League Ebrahim Kunju is accused of depositing Rs 10 Crores into the bank account of IUML’s mouthpiece Chandrika when high-value currency notes were banned by the Modi government.

The orders on Kunju was passed by Justice Sunil Thomas in response to a PIL petition by Kalamassery native Girish Babu that sought an investigation against IUML leader for allegedly attempting to convert black money. The petitioner alleged that the income tax department only imposed a fine on unaccounted transactions but did not take action against the accused. The Vigilance and Anti-corruption Bureau of the state government made it clear that according to their investigation that unaccounted money was deposited into the bank accounts.

Kunju is also under scanner for his alleged involvement in the Palarivattom flyover corruption case. The Flyover at Pipeline junction in Kochi was shut down last year after the cracks were observed on the surface. Ebrahim Kunju was PWD minister of the state of Kerala from 2011-2016.
