A day after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) invaded the residence of Health Minister and PWD Satyendar Jain, the Aam Aadmi party (AAP) accused the investigating agency and the Center Saturday of targeting and defying the IWC to disclose any evidence of disproportionate ownership as indicated.
Mr. Jain was investigated, including incursions, preliminary investigations and FIR, by the IWC, the Application Directorate and the Income Tax Department of his finances.
The latest incident occurred on Friday when the IWC filed an FIR and raided Mr. Jain’s official residence. Regarding the press conference, AAP leader Ashutosh said that if everyone were focused on the law and order situation in Haryana, the CBI was looking for ways to attack Mr. Jain.
AAP spokesman and Kailash’s top commander, Saurabh Bhardwaj, added that the CBI had not yet been able to produce suspicious evidence of Jain’s allegedly disproportionate assets. During Friday’s raid, he said the CBI found 52gm of gold and ₹ 50,000 in cash.
Referring to the media reports that the “incriminating documents” were found by the IWC, Mr. Bhardwaj stated that the only documents that the Agency had received from Mr. Jain’s house were his income tax returns , participation certificates, candidature documents for the polls and documents of the Assembly of 2015 filed a motion of suspension before the High Court. He added that the CBI team took a “furniture inventory”, which is owned by the government.
“All this is already in the public domain, if the IWC has found incriminating documents, then they should say what they are,” he said. In relation to reports that the IWC found ₹ 1.64 to grow in disproportionate assets that Mr. Jain and his wife have accumulated from 2015 to 2017, Bhardwaj stated that he “challenged” the CBI and the Center. The sale of shares or land is worth ₹ 1.
