According to ED sources, Bihar Congress leader Amlendu Pandey, who was questioned by the agency in Thursday is likely to be summoned again next week and confronted in front of Tapuriah.
The ED had earlier said that searches at the residence of Tapuriah had led to recovery of large number of documents including alleged transfer instructions from the account of Khan to various other accounts, and a copy of correspondence with UBS.
Khan, in his statement, had claimed that he had applied for a second passport on the instructions of Tapuriah in spite of his existing passport being in court's custody, the agency said.
Tapuriah allegedly had also travelled abroad with Khan to Switzerland, London, Dubai, Singapore and other countries to facilitate the money laundering activities of the latter.
