The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case against then Union Minister; his wife; two private persons and unknown others on 23.09.2015 on the allegations of possession of Disproportionate Assets. This FIR was the outcome of a preliminary enquiry which revealed that then Union Minister while serving during 2009-2012 had allegedly accumulated assets worth Rs 6.03 crore (approx) in his name and in the name of his family members which were found to be disproportionate to his known sources of income. The other FIR named persons had allegedly abetted then Union Minister in committing the offence.
It was further alleged that then Union Minister for Steel & MSME had invested his unaccounted income in LIC policies in his name and in the name of his wife & other family members through a private person by showing the same as agricultural income. This was done by creation of a MoU purportedly dated 15.06.2008 for maintenance of an apple orchard, with the said private person for a period of three years. The private person had allegedly deposited Rs.5 crore cash (approx) in his own bank account and debited the same through cheques for purchasing various LIC policies in their names. Later, then Union Minister allegedly attempted to legitimize the same as agricultural income by filing revised ITRs in 2012. The agricultural income as claimed by him in his revised ITRs was not found to be tenable. The then Union Minister had allegedly accumulated other assets disproportionate to known sources of income.
Searches have been conducted today at 13 different locations in Shimla & Solan(Himachal Pradesh) and New Delhi. During searches, incriminating documents, property papers, investments, hard disks, pen drives etc have been recovered.
