In a fresh affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the CBI has given clean chit to Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and his sons Akhilesh Yadav and Prateek Yadav in a disproportionate assets case

In its affidavit, CBI says it conducted a preliminary enquiry and found that the allegations of disproportionate assets could not be substantiated and the enquiry was closed after submitting a report to the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) in 2013.

“No prima facie evidence of commission of offence was found during enquiry and the enquiry was not converted into and FIR,” the affidavit said.

The CBI added that no enquiry was conducted in the DA case against Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav after August 2013.
