Allegations against Rakesh Asthana false, powerful people working against him: Brother

In the open letter written on Wednesday, MK Asthana had claimed that some very influential people, lawyers, lawmakers and powerful media persons have been spreading misinformation against his brother.

Ousted CBI chief Rakesh Asthana’s brother MK Asthana has claimed that “fake news, fake propaganda and false information” were spread against his brother by people with vested interests.

According to reports, MK Asthana, in an open letter, has stated that some people with power and influence even tried to interfere in the covert operation that saw AgustaWestland middleman Christian Michel being brought to India.

MK Asthana in his letter has reportedly written, “The CBI team led by Rakesh Asthana was investigating the AgustaWestland case, successfully extradited the middleman Michel in absolute perfect coordination with IB, RAW, NSA and ministry of external affairs, despite last-minute efforts by one section of CBI to scuttle the whole operation by illegally tapping phone calls of officers, government functionaries linked to this extradition process.”

MK Asthana has claimed that one section of CBI, under orders from former chief Alok Verma was actively trying to scuttle the operation under Rakesh Asthana’s leadership.

In the open letter written on Wednesday, MK Asthana had claimed that some very influential people, lawyers, lawmakers and powerful media persons have been spreading misinformation against his brother.

MK Asthana has reportedly stated that Rakesh Asthana’s findings of the involvement of the former CBI director Alok Verma in corruption cases have also been upheld by the CVC, the Supreme Court and the 3-member selection committee.

He has also added that the allegations against Rakesh Asthana are false and concocted, orchestrated by Alok Verma to malign his brother.

It was reported earlier that the CVC report against Alok Verma mentions that he had “clear prejudice and bias” against Rakesh Asthana. It also mentioned that Alok Verma had forged a ‘secret note’ sent by the CBI to the selection committee to stall Asthana’s appointment as CBI director in 2017.
