A special court here Thursday issued summons to former city Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family members in the disproportionate assets case against them.
Singh and the others have been asked by the court dealing with Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) cases to be present on September 16. The ACB had filed the chargesheet on April 4 under relevant sections of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act.
The case was registered after the Bombay HC directed police to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct and disproportionate assets against him.
Sanjay Tiwari, an activist, had filed a public interest litigation alleging that Singh and his relatives had assets worth Rs 320 crore disproportionate to known sources of their income.
Tiwari claimed that Singh was close to former Jharkhand CM Madhu Koda, jailed in a hawala scam, and several monetary transactions had taken place between them. Singh’s son Narendra Mohan is married to Ankita, daughter of Kamlesh Singh, a minister in Koda cabinet. Ankita had received Rs 1.75 crore from Kamlesh, the PIL said.
