CBI case against Mayavathi on disproportionate assets
In an affidavit, CBI contested UP chief minister Mayawati’s argument that the agency was harassing her despite the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) backing her stand that the “disproportionate assets” were gifts received by her. CBI argued that ITAT findings were based on assumptions and conjectures whereas evidence collected by CBI was unimpeachable.
Attorney-general G E Vahanvati had told SC that CBI would consider her April 20 representation protesting CBI’s stubbornness in persisting with the DA case despite the clean chit from the I-T department. The matter comes up for hearing on Monday.
