AN EXTORTION ATTEMPT GONE WRONG OR AN OFFER TO BRIBE: SUNIL JAKHAR DEMANDS INDEPENDENT ENQUIRY
CHANDIGARH, (Aditi) : Targetting the AAP regime for their deafening silence over inaction against corruption charges levelled against one of their own Minister, former Member Parliament (MP) and BJP leader Sunil Jakhar raised questions about the manner in which the vigilance officer first invited and then shared his location with now-arrested former Cabinet Minister Sunder Sham Arora for a 'meeting' at his home.
This is against all norms and rules of police investigation, Jakhar said adding that it belies commonsense that an officer who is investigating the accused would ask the latter to come to his home. Emphasising that he was not giving clean chit to anyone, Jakhar however underlined that the gross neglect of propriety and established procedure raise serious suspicion and doubt which demand an answer.
It seems like an enticement to elicit illegal gratification, Jakhar said adding that the suspicion becomes stronger and pertinent in backdrop of Vigilance Bureau's arrest of an AIG level officer in a similarly sounding extortion case recently.
