Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was today questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the alleged irregularities in the conduct of the second season of the Indian Premier League. The ED also recorded the statement of Preity, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, for over 10 hours. "She complied with the summons issued to her by us", said an ED official. Preity (38) appeared before the ED authorities at 10 AM and her statement was recorded for over ten hours, he said without elaborating. Former BCCI president Shashank Manohar, cricketer Ravi Shastri, who were on the IPL governing council, besides actor and Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan, had earlier been questioned in connection with alleged irregularities in conduct of IPL-2 held in South Africa. The second edition of IPL was held in South Africa in 2009 after the venue was shifted from India. It is alleged that ill-gotten money flowed into the T-20 tournament from foreign tax havens. The ED had in 2011 issued a notice to BCCI and former IPL chairman Lalit Modi over an alleged contravention of foreign exchange rules and evasion of taxes during the second season of the IPL. The second edition of the tournament which came under the scanner also led to the sacking of the then commissioner Lalit Modi for alleged financial irregularities in the organisation of the tournament.
