Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal has come out strongly against the UPA government over the audiotape which shows alleged collusion between CBI prosecutor and Sanjay Chandra of Unitech, one of the accused in the 2G spectrum case.
Kejriwal said that in case AK Singh is found guilty, it should be probed whether he was working on his own or following the orders of his political masters.
Secondly, Kejriwal pointed out that the role of the law ministry should be questioned as it is the law ministry which appointed Singh as a prosecutor in this case. “It appears that the law minister had some interest in appointing Singh as a counsel in this high profile case. Now, who will launch against the law minister? That is why we have been demanding an independent CBI,” said Kejriwal to Firstpost.
CBI has removed prosecutor AK Singh from the case and has filed a preliminary enquiry report. The agency has informed the Supreme Court, central vigilance commission and the law ministry about the development.
Unitech has said that its managing director Sanjay Chandra never met the chief prosecutor outside the court and neither did the tow have any telephonic conversations.
The CBI has taken voice samples of Chandra and Singh to match them with the audio tape.
