The Delhi police has given a clean chit to BJP national headquarter in-charge Shyam Jaju. Jaju had allegedly acquired four PAN cards and used them for several financial transactions.
Police, on Saturday, submitted its status report in court.
According to the report, during the verification of the three allegedly fake PAN cards, the Directorate of Income Tax said it never issued the mentioned PAN cards in the name of Shyam Jaju.
The Investigating officer claimed that she had personally visited the address mentioned in the PAN cards; all were found to be incorrect.
Moreover, police said that the D-Mat account number exists in the name of Shyam Jaju in Angel Broking LTD, Mumbai and that Jaju has no account in HDFC bank located at Shivaji Nagar, Pune, and that the account statement produced is forged.
The police said that all information alleging that Jaju indulged in illegal financial transactions, as per an anonymous letter sent to court, were found to be untrue.
Jaju, who was present in court, contended that the summons issued by the court, after taking note of an anonymous letter was illegal and should be quashed. The Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, after hearing the argument of Jaju's lawyer, reserved its order on staying its previous direction of issuing summons against the leader.
