A team of Patna police, headed by an SP rank officer, is likely to visit Nagpur to trace the source of Rs 1.14 crore cash which a thief has claimed he has stolen from Nawada BJP MP Giriraj Singh’s Patna residence.
The MP, who had earlier said only Rs 50,000 was stolen from his house, has now claimed that the money belonged to his cousin Rakesh Kumar Singh who is in realty, maize processing and poultry farm business in Nagpur.

Police said Rakesh, who was asked to produce relevant documents to substantiate his ownership claim over the recovered cash, claimed that he had kept Rs 1.20 crore cash at the flat of the MP “with the plan to expand his business”.

“The chartered accountant of Rakesh’s company said Rs 80 lakh came from selling five acres of agricultural land near Nagpur to a Patna resident and Rs 35 lakh was received as loan from a bank in Pune.

“The cash, the MP claimed, was kept at his home to make payment for the purchase of maize from Khagaria and adjoining districts,” said SSP in-charge of Patna, Rajiv Mishra.

    So he must have accidentally forgotten about the small amount of money 1.2 crores in cash that was sitting just next to his 50,000 rupees that he first reported missing. I wonder which one of these two cousins would be willing to go thru a lie detector test, Now the buyer of the property has to corroborate that he paid the cash and the denominations. Who will have to get another liar to tell the same story. And so on. Soon there will be a weak link that will either on purpose or accidentally tell the truth.And everyone that lied up to the chain will be guilty. How many of the people in the chain would be willing to lie. and take the risk, Remains to be seen.

      Investigation is too much. There are lot of issues in Bihar. Let the Govt. take care of the same. Let JD (U) co-operate with the Centre to bring back black money from Swiss
