ED sources said its officers want to question her about the companies wherein she is the director as well as the rice mills in which she is a partner.

As part of its investigation into the cattle smuggling scam, two companies — ANM Agrochem Private Limited and Neer Developer Private Limited — are under the scanner of both the ED and the CBI, which are conducting parallel investigations into the alleged scam.

In both companies, Sukanya is one of the two directors and the central agency officers believe these two corporate entities were shell companies meant for channelising the crime proceeds.

CBI officers had earlier questioned Sukanya in this connection.
