Amitabh Bachchan and all others, who had attended the inauguration of a school would be summoned by the Anti-Corruption Bureau to record their statements as witnesses, the prosecution said on Monday.

The school was allegedly set up by the arrested police Sub-Inspector Daya Nayak in his native village some years ago.

Nayak is facing charges of possessing assets disproportionate to his income.

One of the allegations against him is that he donated about Rs. 1 crore to the Radha Nayak Government High School, set up by a trust in Yeennehole in his native village in Udupi district in Karnataka.

Nayak is one of the trustees of this trust. When the school was inaugurated in 2000, many Bollywood personalities had attended the function, the prosecution had alleged.

While talking to reporters outside the court on Monday, public prosecutor RV Kiny said that those who attended this function would be summoned by ACB to record their statements as witnesses.

Nayak has refuted the charge that he donated Rs. 1 crore to this school, and submitted a list of donors in an earlier enquiry.

Prosecution claims that some of these donors names are fake.
