New Delhi: A day after Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar were booked by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for alleged money laundering, the veteran leader said he would fully cooperate with the agency in its probe.

In the wake of the probe agency’s action on Tuesday, Pawar had said he was “ready to go to jail". On Wednesday, addressing the media, Pawar, who has been linked to the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB) scam, said he was willing to cooperate with the ED in its probe.

While the ED is likely to summon the NCP supremo and his nephew soon, Pawar said he was “willing to present myself before" the agency.

On Tuesday, ED registered a case of money laundering against Pawar and his nephew in connection with the MSCB scam to the tune of 25,000 crore. The case has been registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Meanwhile, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said, “To say that this is a conspiracy against him by the state government is baseless."
