A day after withdrawing his hunger strike, sacked Delhi water minister Kapil Mishra on Tuesday approached the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a complaint against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal over his alleged involvement in money laundering.

Mishra claimed he had submitted “irrefutable proof” against the Delhi chief minister and two AAP MLAs, whom he did not name, to the central investigation agency over their alleged links with several fake companies.

“A person who came riding on the promise to fight the country’s corrupt political system, to fight elections using donations from small sources, stands exposed today. He has attempted to run the AAP using black money,” he told reporters.

On May 14, Mishra, a former close confidante of the AAP chief, had accused Kejriwal and the AAP of “massive” financial irregularities, including funneling money through shell companies, while taking donations.

Mishra, who was sacked as water and tourism minister on May 6, had also been demanding details on foreign trips of five AAP leaders. He had said he saw CM Arvind Kejriwal take money from cabinet colleague Satyendra Jain, a remark that triggered a flutter in the AAP that has been reeling due a string of election losses and infighting.

Mishra alleged the AAP had over Rs 45 crore in its bank account during the financial year of 2013-2014 whereas the party in its declaration to the EC had showed an income of around Rs 9 crore.

He said the party had accumulated the money through shell companies and by converting black money into white through hawala transactions.
