Probe Jay Amit Shah, says CPI-M

By IANS

New Delhi, Oct 16: The CPI-M on Monday demanded a probe into the business affairs of BJP President Amit Shah's son Jay Amit Shah.

"It would have been farfetched to expect that the Modi government would have handed over investigations to the CBI, ED and the Income Tax department, like in the case of some businessmen and opposition politicians on corruption and money laundering charges," said a CPI-M communique after a Central Committee meeting here.

"Even in the other cases like the Vyapam scam, Bihar land scam, Panama Papers, Sahara-Birla diaries, Lalit Modi case, the government has deliberately refused to initiate any proceedings.

"The Central Committee demands that the Modi government should launch proceedings in all these cases."

The statement said: "In the latest scam involving Jay Shah, Union Cabinet Ministers have been fielded to come out in his defence. None of the spokespersons however have contested the facts that were made public by the expose."
