Former External Affairs Minister K Natwar Singh's son Jagat Singh on Wednesday denied before Pathak Inquiry Authority having received Rs 1.5 crore in kickbacks in the Oil for Food scam in Iraq and accused his family's political adversaries of being behind the "malicious campaign."
In an affidavit filed before the Authority, Jagat Singh, a Congress MLA in Rajasthan, said the media reports about him having received the money in a London account and his father helping him to get the oil contracts "are completely false, misleading and made with malicious intention."
He urged the Authority to summon all the leaders, in India and abroad, making "insinuating" statements against him.
Earlier, both Jagat and his father K Natwar Singh had denied any connection with oil deals in Iraq.
