With Punjab CM ordering a judicial probe into allegations of “benami” sand mining bids against Punjab power minister Rana Gurjit Singh, investors of Rajbir Enterprises, Rajbir Enterprises (Mohali) and New Rajbir Enterprises (three separate entities) on Monday claimed that they had invested around Rs 30 crore for the sand mines of Saidpur, Behloor Khurd and Mehdipur in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar district.

Reacting to reports that Amit Bahadur had invested the money, the investors of the three entities said “the money had been arranged by Sahil Singla and Capt JS Randhawa”.

Giving details of the three entities, the promoters said, “there are three partners in Rajbir Enterprises — Sahil Singla, Sanjit Singh Randhawa (both investors) and Amit Bahadur (working partner). Rajbir Enterprises (Mohali) includes Sahil Singla, Sanjit Singh Randhawa (both investors) and Kulvinder Paul Singh (working partner) and New Rajbir Enterprises includes Sahil Singla, Sanjit Singh Randhawa (both investors) and Ajitpal Singh Gill (working partner).

The investors made it clear that neither Amit Bahadur nor Kulvinder Paul Singh had invested any money and they were only working partners.

The investors said, each and every penny was accounted for and had been deposited through the proper banking channels.
