Bid to gain mileage out of Sunder Sham Arora's arrest: Sunil Jakhar


Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 17

Targeting the Bhagwant Mann-led Aam Aadmi Party’s government, over inaction against corruption charges levelled against one of his own ministers, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sunil Jakhar on Monday raised questions about the manner in which the Vigilance Bureau officer first invited former minister and BJP leader Sunder Sham Arora and then shared his location with his counterparts.

Jakhar said, “It belies common sense that an officer, who is investigating the accused, will ask the latter to come at his place.”

It seemed like an enticement to elicit illegal gratification, Jakhar said, adding that the suspicion becomes stronger, in the backdrop of arrest of an AIG-rank officer by the VB in a similar extortion case.

Terming it as an AAP attempt to divert attention from failures, he said, “There is every likelihood of the AAP orchestrating this stunt to gain political mileage ahead of the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat Assembly poll.”

He pointed out that the Lokpal had already absolved Arora of charges levelled against him related to the distribution of plots.
