A public interest litigation (PIL) was filed Wednesday in the Delhi High Court to seek a CBI probe into foreign funds the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) received in the past and now in violation of law. The plea came days after AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM), a group of volunteers who broke away from the AAP in August last year, alleged that the party received Rs.2 crore in four equal installments from the companies registered in Delhi slums and having the same set of directors.
The group has claimed that April 5, 2014, four bogus companies made donations of Rs.50 lakh each through cheques to AAP at midnight. It alleged the companies made those donations despite not having earned profits for two years. Advocate M.L. Sharma filed an application in the ongoing case that sought registration of a criminal case against AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and others for allegedly receiving foreign funds in violation of law.
Sharma claimed that it has been revealed that lakhs of phone calls from Dubai and other countries have been made to Delhi, especially to the Muslim community for supporting AAP’s election. “The AAP now has been securing funds from foreign country, especially Muslim terrorist, in cash converting through false cheques as well as phone calls to Delhi from Dubai and other countries what they already did in the last election in 2013,” the plea said.
