Unable to gain access to Sachin Pilot loyalists, the Special Operations Group (SOG) of the Rajasthan Police late last night brought Sanjay Jain, an accused in the horse-trading case, to Best Western Country Inn. He reportedly confessed to having visited the resort but gave no details, according to the SOG.

“We brought him here to confirm if he had met the rebel MLAs. He led us to the other resort near ITC Grand Bharat, claiming he did visit the premises, but met nobody there,” said Additional DGP (SOG) Ashok Rathore. Jain, alias Sanjay Bardia, was arrested a week ago after his name figured in an audio tape on alleged horse-trading of MLAs to topple the Gehlot-led government in Rajasthan. Hailing from Bikaner, Jain is known to be a power broker. Claiming that he was a BJP leader, the Congress had released his pictures with former CM Vasundhara Raje. However, he is said to be close to both senior Congress and BJP leaders in the state.

Sources said Jain identified the resort staff who had let him in but claimed he had met nobody there. The SOG will now go for voice spectrography on July 29.
