Officials aware of the matter said that a case under FEMA has been registered against Moitra as it has information about certain foreign transactions including undisclosed ones which are being probed under the Act.

Moitra is already being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as part of a preliminary enquiry in connection with the alleged cash-for-query case. She was expelled as a member of Lok Sabha after the Ethics panel found her guilty in the 'cash-for-query' case.

BJP MP Nishikant Dubey had accused Moitra of asking questions in Lok Sabha to target Adani Group and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the behest of businessman Darshan Hiranandani in exchange for gifts. He had also accused Moitra of compromising national security for monetary gains.

Moitra has denied any wrongdoing and claimed she was being targeted as she had raised questions on the deals of the Adani group.

"Neither has Lok Pal uploaded any referral order on website as per Lokpal Act & nor has CBI put out anything official. "Sources" telling journos as per usual media circus. Hope 13,000 crore Adani coal scam merits CBI PE before my witchhunt," Moitra had said on X in November.
