Madhya Pradesh: Kamal Nath government reshuffles SIT probing the honey trapping case, changes chief for the third time in ten days

Known for his impeccable record and integrity, Sanjeev Shami will now be replaced by Rajendra Kumar who will now head the SIT and will be assisted by Milind Kanaskar and Ruchi Wardhan as members.

Madhya Pradesh Cheif Minister, Kamal Nath’s predicaments seem to have risen ever since the high profile, murky honey trapping case has surfaced in Congress-ruled Madhya Pradesh. The government is suffering an embarrassing time after the lurid details of the case is being unravelled one at a time by the investigative agency probing the matter. The dilemma is such that the CM has changed the SIT chief over and over again.

Chief Minister Kamal Nath on late Tuesday evening removed Sanjeev Shami as the head of the Special Investigative Team (SIT) that was formed to investigate the murky honey trap case. Kamal Nath also reshuffled the SIT probing the case.

Interestingly, this will be the third time SIT and its head has been changed after the sensational honey trap scandal broke out in the state, casting apprehensions on the intention of the government.

Known for his impeccable record and integrity, Sanjeev Shami will now be replaced by Rajendra Kumar who will now head the SIT and will be assisted by Milind Kanaskar and Ruchi Wardhan as members.

Notably, Sanjeev Shami, who had earlier replaced Srinivas Verma as SIT chief, and had been probing the case since 24 September, recovered thousands of video clips, sex chats and audio clips along with a diary which contained secret code words for the high profile ‘targets’.

This diary or the ‘red book’ allegedly contains the names of politicians occupying high positions and also some bureaucrats. After the diary reached the media it is being believed that the government issued a new circular to remove Sanjeev Shami as the SIT chief and instead gave charge of the probe to Rajendra Kumar.

Kamal Nath, in the meeting with the Director-General of Police, VK Singh and Chief Secretary of the state, SR Mohanty, apparently expressed his displeasure over the involvement of the ATS with the case.

The disapproval probably comes as Kamal Nath is convinced that the investigation into the case could throw up more than what his government could handle.

On September 18, the high-profile honey-trapping racket that blackmailed and exhorted top politicians and government officials with videos was busted by Madhya Pradesh police officials in Bhopal. Five women, including the wife of a former Congress IT cell vice-president, have been arrested in connection with the case.

Shweta, the kingpin, has reportedly confessed that she had trapped dozens of college girls and made them sleep with bureaucrats and politicians. Videos were made of these sexual escapades and these videos were then used by the gang to extort money.
