New Delhi, Aug 3 (ANI): Targeting the CBI again, the Chairman of the National Commission for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes, Buta Singh, on Monday said that he is being framed by the agency through his son Sarabjot Singh.
Addressing the media here, Buta Singh said: "It was I who approached the police and urged them to approach the CBI in this (bribery) case. It is the CBI that is responsible for masterminding this political conspiracy against me."
The former Union Minister said he has already briefed Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh about the case.
"I have briefed the Prime Minister regarding the facts. He has responded positively and sought more details."
On Sunday, Buta Singh had said that he was being victimised by the CBI.
"This is a political conspiracy done by a party. Me and my son are being victimised and I am being attacked.
The CBI instead of investigating the case is preparing witnesses against me and my son.I won't name any party or element, but this is definitely a political conspiracy against me," he said.
Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate (EC) has been roped in to help investigations of a bribery case.
Sarabjot was arrested on July 31 along with Anup Kumar Begi, Madan Singh Solanki and Dhukh Singh Chauhan for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs one crore from Patil to close a case registered against him under the SC/ST Act. (ANI)
