The Janata Party president demanded action against Indians who have allegedly stashed away money in foreign banks
Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy yesterday met CBI director AP Singh and demanded registration of cases against Indians who have allegedly stashed away money in foreign banks.
Swamy, who heads Action Committee Against Corruption in India (ACACI), met Singh in the morning in the Capital with his complaint, demanding registration of cases. Singh assured him that his complaint would be 'examined' and action would be taken if the issue came under CBI's domain.
"Subramanian Swamy had requested a meeting with the CBI director. He handed over a complaint regarding alleged illegal bank accounts of Indians abroad," the CBI spokesperson said.
Swamy told reporters after the meeting that the CBI director has given him an assurance that the agency will take a decision on his complaint within a fortnight. Recently, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had given a list of 18 individuals - received from German authorities - to CBI. The investigating agency, in its reply, had informed CBDT that except one individual, none of the other 17, whose names have been provided to it, had any cases against them.
