Ayub Rana petition: Supreme hearing on 25

New Delhi, January 23- The Supreme Court has said that it will hear the petition filed by journalist Rana Ayub challenging the summons issued by the Ghaziabad court of Uttar Pradesh on the 25th.

A case has been filed against the Enforcement Directorate under the Money Laundering Act.

Advocate Vrinda Grover raised the issue before a bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud. Although it was listed for hearing today, the bench which was supposed to hear the case said it would not take up the matter on January 25.

The matter was listed for hearing before a bench of Justices V Ramasubramanian and JB Pardiwala.
The CJI said that it will be taken up for questioning on Wednesday.

Advocate Brinda Grover issued a summons against Ayub on January 27 in a Ghaziabad court. Therefore, he proposed before the bench that the matter required an urgent list.

In October 2022, the ED filed a complaint against her in a Ghaziabad court on charges of violations in raising public funds.

The ED registered a case against Ayub under provisions of the Indian Penal Code, the Information Technology Amendment Act and the Black Money Act based on a complaint filed in Ghaziabad in September 2021.

In the FIR, it is alleged that Ayyub received foreign donations without registering under the Foreign Contribution Control Act, illegally collecting money from the public in the name of charity by launching a fundraising campaign.
