New Delhi: The Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing has registered a case of forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy against four companies which had faced allegations of irregularities in connection with their donation to AAP during the Assembly elections last year.
A rebel group named AAP Volunteers Action Manch (AVAM) had last year alleged irregularities with respect to four particular companies which, they claimed, had donated around Rs 2.5 crore to the AAP before the elections, police sources said.
They had even approached the Election Commission and Delhi Police regarding the matter. Later, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs took up an independent inquiry into the matter and found some discrepancies in the records of the said companies, the sources added.
The FIR was registered recently on the basis of a complaint by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, they said. AAP had dismissed the allegations levelled by AVAM as being baseless. The rebel group had also come in for criticism because it had failed to substantiate the claims.
