The Enforcement Directorate has filed a money-laundering case against Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s daughter Veena Vijayan, her IT company and some others to probe alleged illegal payments made by a private mineral firm to her company, sources in the central agency said on Wednesday.

“A case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) has been registered to probe the allegations against Veena Vijayan. The agency will soon issue summons to several people involved in the alleged money laundering,” said an ED official.

“This particular case stems from an income tax department investigation that alleged that a private company called Cochin Minerals And Rutile Ltd (CMRL) had illegally paid Rs 1.72 crore to Veena’s company in 2018 and 2019, even though it had not provided any service to CMRL,” the ED official said.

The ED filed the case after taking cognisance of a complaint filed by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office, an investigative arm of the Union corporate affairs ministry, the official added.
