Bundles of cash recovered, hawala links emerge, AgustaWestland scam suspicion, but Kamal Nath yells ‘vendetta’

Recently more than 300 IT Income Tax sleuths conducted raids in 50 locations connected to Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath.

Congress bigwig, Kamal Nath’s reaction to the I-T raids conducted on his aides reeks of nothing but extreme arrogance and fallaciousness that the Congress ecosystem has adhered to for all these years. Though all the facts are into public view, Kamal Nath audaciously called the IT raids conducted on his close aides a ‘political conspiracy’, saying the ‘centre won’t be successful in targeting me’.

Recently more than 300 IT Income Tax sleuths conducted raids in 50 locations connected to Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath. According to reports, searches were conducted at locations of MP Chief Minister’s OSD, Ratul Puri (Kamal Nath’s nephew), Amira Group, and Moser Baer. Searches were also conducted in Bhopal, Indore, Goa and 35 locations in Delhi.

The Income Tax Department Monday said it detected a “widespread and well-organised” racket of a collection of unaccounted cash of about Rs 281 crore during raids against close aides of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and others.

It furthered that the sleuths have recovered Rs 14.6 crore of “unaccounted” cash and seized diaries and computer files of suspect payments made between Madhya Pradesh and Delhi.

The diary which the IT department seized during these raids allegedly belonged to Deepak Puri, the chairman of Moser Baer group and brother-in-law of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, which has revealed the money trail between shell companies to convert crores of rupees into dollars using bogus bills.

The seized diary suggests that nearly Rs 242 crores were transferred to five ‘shell’ companies owned by Parasmal Lodha. A Kolkata-based company was also used for infusion of bogus capital to the tune of Rs.125 crores. Reportedly, Moser Baer group also bought shares worth Rs.250 crores through shell companies from Mauritius. The diary also reveals that Deepak Puri had allegedly collected money from various sources to get it converted into dollars through issuing bogus bills.

Moreover, The IT officials had also recovered huge cash stuffed in suitcases from a person known as Prateek Joshi from Bhopal.

Apart from this, Kamal Nath’s name had also surfaced earlier, when the Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday questioned businessman Ratul Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath in connection with the Rs 3600 crore AgustaWestland scam. On Friday, Ratul Puri was summoned for questioning a second time.

Similarly, the Enforcement Directorate had tracked down the money trail of kickbacks received by Christian Michel, the prime accused middleman in the AgustaWestland chopper scam, and it has led them to Moser Baer which is owned by Deepak Puri. It was reported that a part of the kickbacks was routed through Moser Baer which is owned by Deepak Puri.

Deepak Puri is the brother-in-law of none other than Kamal Nath. Puri is married to Nita Puri, sister of Senior Congress Leader and Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath and has one son Ratul Puri. Both Nita and Ratul are part of Moser Baer.

Gandhi family loyalist and Congress veteran, Kamal Nath’s family link with AgustaWestland middleman Christian Michel are now completely exposed. Earlier agencies had also established that Kamal Nath’s son Bakul Nath was harbouring and providing all help to Christian Michel who was hiding in Dubai.

Now the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made public that Kamal Nath’s nephew Ratul Puri is wanted in connection with the money trails in the AgustaWestland scam. It has also established Kamal Nath’s brother-in-law involvement in routing kickbacks in the Rs 3600 crore AgustaWestland scam. His close aides are also now in the IT department’s radar.

With all this information now in full view, one is left to wonder as to how many more dirty secrets does the Congress bigwig have up his sleeves and until when can he manage to shuffle off the burden calling it ‘political vendetta’?
