New Delhi, July 20: The CBI has given clean chit to Samajwadi Party (SP) Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, in an eight year old disproportionate assets case against him.
According to reports, the CBI has prepared 132-page preliminary
enquiry report in the DA case.
Sources said that CBI has failed to procure any evidence against Yadav.
Sources also said that, CBI has shown, in its report that
Mulayam has taken money from his relatives in the form of loan
which was later shown as gift.
As CBI remains evasive on the issue, it has refused to give any comment on the case and has reportedly said that the case is still under scrutiny.
It is learnt that the CBI has not questioned any relative of Mulayam, in prelim enquiry report.
Sources have also claimed that the enquiry report was signed by DIG Level officer in the CBI and files were moved fast in the last few days before being sent to the Joint Director of CBI on Friday.
When questioned whether the CBI acted softly over him, Mulayam Singh Yadav said he doesn't know about it.
The respite for Mulayam and UP chief minister Akhilesh Ydav comes days ahead of next Parliamentary session.
In November 2005, Rae Bareli advocate Vishvanath Chaturvedi filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking a CBI inquiry into the assets of Mulayam Singh Yadav, sons Akhilesh and Prateek, and daughter-in-law Dimple.
He alleged the family had acquired properties in Lucknow, Etawah, etc, worth over Rs 100 crore, which were disproportionate to their known sources of income.
Meanwhile, the BJP and the Left has raised opposition over CBI's clean chit to Mulayam Singh Yadav and has said that the case must be pursued by the CBI.
