Thiruvananthapuram: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) will again question Thrissur CPI(M) district secretary MM Varghese in the Karuvannur Co-operative Bank fraud case.

The CPI(M) didn’t share the payment details in the account. MM Varghese didn’t provide information about the money in the account but testified that the information related to the account should be asked from the state secretary.
