Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials today recorded the
statements of three accused, including suspended IAS officer Y Srilakshmi, in
connection with Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) case under the Prevention of
Money Laundering Act.
Armed with permission from a CBI court, a four-member ED
team went to Chanchalguda jail here and questioned them before recording their
statements under the PMLA, jail sources said.
The ED personnel recorded the statements of Srilakshmi,
OMC's Managing Director B V Srinivas Reddy and former mining director of Andhra
Pradesh government V D Rajagopal on the basis of chargesheets filed by the CBI.
The ED had served summons on nine accused allegedly involved
in OMC's case as also that of Emaar scam and assets case against YSR Congress
president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to record their statements under PMLA.
The ED officials are likely to record statements of the
accused in Jagan's asset case tomorrow.
