Congress spreads sensational conspiracy involving Nirav Modi and Income Tax dept, gets promptly refuted

The Congress party on Sunday shared a Tribune news report which alleged a sensational conspiracy theory involving absconding diamond merchant Nirav Modi and the Income Tax department.

As per the tweet put out by the Congress party’s official twitter handle, it alleged that “in a convenient turn of events papers relating to Nirav Modi, had been burnt during the fire at the tax agency’s offices in Mumbai.

The IT department further explained that documents relating to the investigation into Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi had been previously transferred to other buildings. Incidentally following the debunk, Tribune – the source of Congress’ allegation, has pulled down its report:
