Video CDs showing three ministers in the previous Ashok Gehlot Government in Rajasthan allegedly accepting bribe for allotment of land were released on Saturday by a real estate agent in Jaipur.

Releasing seven CDs to the press, Ranveer Singh, an ex-serviceman and a real estate agent, alleged that the video showed Takiuddin Ahmed, Choga Ram Bakolia and Gulab Singh Shaktawat, who were the ministers for urban development, social welfare and home respectively in the previous Congress government, as accepting Rs. two lakh each for the deal.

Several other Congress leaders, including Gehlot's brother, also figured in the video shot in July last year, he claimed.

The bribe was allegedly paid to the ministers for allotment of 15 per cent developed land in lieu of land acquired by Jaihu Development Authority in Chainpura village in Sanganer tehsil of Jaipur district, Singh alleged.

All the three ministers had lost assembly elections in November last year.
