The Madhya Pradesh Economic Offences Wing (EOW) has reopened a case in which former Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia and his family are accused of falsifying a property document while selling land.
Retrubtion was swift for the ex Congress leader who quite the party just two days ago and joined the BJP on Wednesday. Twenty-two MLAs who belong to his camp also tendered their resignations, threatening the survival of the Kamal Nath government in the state.’
An EOW release said Surendra Shrivastava had on Thursday filed a new complaint against Scindia and his family, alleging that by falsifying a registry document, they sold him a piece of land at Mahalgaon which was smaller by 6,000 sq feet than the original agreement in 2009. The complaint was first lodged in 2014 and after “investigations” was closed in 2018.
“As he again petitioned us today, we will re-verify the facts,” a EOW officer told a newsagency.
“The case had been closed for want of evidence. Now for vengeance, it is being reopened. We have full faith in the Constitution and law. We will get justice and Kamal Nath government a befitting reply,” a close aide of Scindia is reported to have said.
