ED, through its summons, asked Raut to appear before the probe agency for questioning on Tuesday in a money laundering case related to the re-development of a Mumbai' Chawl', officials informed.

Raut tweeted, "I just got to know that the ED has sent me a notice. Major developments are taking place in Maharashtra. We all are Shiv Sainiks of (Sena founder) Balasaheb. This is a conspiracy. Even if I am beheaded, I will not take the Guwahati route," in Marathi, tagging BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis.

Further, he challenged the ED to arrest him.
