Congress targets PM over CBI officer’s revelations against Doval, CVC

New Delhi: The Congress on Monday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi after senior CBI official MK Sinha alleged in the Supreme Court that NSA Ajit Doval and Central Vigilance Commissioner KV Chaudhary had interfered in the investigation against CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana facing bribery charges.

Deeply shocking revelations have surfaced in public domain, which puts a question mark on Prime Minister Modi

Expressing alarm over the assertions made by Sinha before the court, Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said “democracy was in peril and Constitution in danger”.

“Deeply shocking revelations have surfaced in public domain, which puts a question mark on Prime Minister Modi, functioning of PMO, allegations of bribery against Minister and NSA helping the accused and CVC being named in these murky dealings,” Surjewala told the media here.

“The assertions have been made under oath before the Supreme Court by someone who has been privy to relevant documents and they expose the stench of corruption that pervades the Modi government,” he said.

Besides urging the apex court to order a separate probe into the allegations made against the top Modi government officials and Ministers, the Congress leader said the party will raise the issue in Parliament.

Citing a conversation involving R&AW officer Samant Goel, the petition says: “On 23.10.2018, someone spoke to Samant Goel and asked to help him to which Samant Goel replied that things have been managed with PMO and everything is fine. The same night the entire investigating team was shifted.”

He has also claimed that Sana Sathish Babu had met Central Vigilance Commissioner Chaudhary in the matter and that Union Law Secretary Suresh Chandra had contacted him (Sana) on November 11.

He had also alleged that when CBI officer AK Bassi, who was investigating the Asthana case, asked for permission to seize Asthana’s cell phones and for a search, “the Director CBI did not give immediate permission and reverted that the NSA has not permitted the same”.
