Former Union minister and Congress leader Renuka Choudhary and expelled SP leader Jaya Prada today denied having any links with Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan, accused of stashing black money abroad, after his associate Kashinath Tapuriah named them in his interrogation.
Tapuriah, a Kolkata-based businessman and co-accused in multi-crore money laundering case, had named several politicians in his statements to Enforcement Directorate.
Both Chowdhry and Jaya Prada refuted the allegations.
"I have never met him. He will have to prove how he met me, when he met me," Choudhary said.
Actress-turned politician Jaya Prada also said she doesn't recognise Hasan Ali, though she might have met but she doesn't know.
"I am an artist, I travel around the world. I meet many fans. I do not recognise him. I might have met him but I do not know him," she said.
