In a big relief for Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son, Akhilesh Yadav, among others, the CBI has given them a clean chit in the disproportionate assets case. The CBI filed a fresh affidavit filed in the Supreme Court in the concerned 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 also added that no enquiry was conducted in the DA case against Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav after August 2013.
The CBI told the apex court that the inquiry into the alleged disproportionate assets of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh and his sons, party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Prateek Yadav and daughter-in-law and SP MP Dimple Yadav were closed in 2013 as no evidence could be found.
The CBI in the fresh affidavit said, “No prima facie evidence of commission of offence was found during inquiry and the inquiry was not converted into and FIR.”
