I am being victimised by CBI: Buta Singh
New Delhi, Aug 2: National Commission for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes Chairman and former Union Home Minister Buta Singh on Sunday, Aug 2 alleged that he is being victimised by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the Rs 1 crore bribery case involving his son Sarabjot Singh.
Addressing a press conference, Buta Singh said that he is ready to answer any questions if interrogated by the CBI. He also said, "This is a conspiracy by a political party. CBI's not playing role as an investigative agency here, but corroborating with the accused. They used my son to target me."
He added, "I have already briefed the Prime Minister. I'll ask for time to meet him. I will not take any names. I will speak at an appropriate time, appropriate forum and I will fully co-operate with CBI if they come with proper procedure."
Meanwhile, The CBI has denied any political pressure to investigate on the case. The CBI also claimed that the agency has sent a report on this case to the Home Ministry.
