Uttar Pradesh police on Friday said it has no information that Kolkata police has sent back documents related to the alleged case of financial fraud amounting to Rs 500 crore against SP leader Amar Singh and his wife to the state.
"We have sent documents related to the case against SP leader Amar Singh and others for alleged financial fraud amounting to Rs 500 crore to Kolkata police. The case was forwarded to the Kolkata police on October 17 and received by it on October 19", Additional Director General, Law and Order A K Jain told reporters.
Asked about reports appearing in a section of the media that the case was sent back to UP police by their Kolkata counterparts, Jain said that he had not received any such communication yet.
On October 15, one Shiva Kant Tiwari lodged an FIR with Babupurwa police station in Kanpur district against Amar Singh and his wife accusing them of amalgamating companies allegedly owned or run by them for converting black money into white, a charge SP leader dismissed as "conjecture".
The case was transferred to Kolkata police for further investigation as most of the companies named in the FIR were based in Kolkata.
The name of actor Amitabh Bachchan also figured in the 14-page complaint as director of one of the companies.
