AAP member Preeti Sharma Menon claims he has lied, wants him sacked

Maharashtra revenue minister Eknath Khadse has denied that he made any phone calls to Dawood Ibrahim.

In a statement, Khadse said, “My phone number must have been cloned. For the past year, I have not used that number."

The State ordered an inquiry after ethical hacker Manish Bhangale from Vadodra, revealed that Dawood’s call records of four Karachi (Pakistan) numbers, registered in his wife Mehjabeen Shaikh’s name, showed Khadse’s number on the most-dialled list of Ibrahim’s international call list last week.

AAP spokesperson Preeti Sharma Menon insisted Khadse is lying. “The bill was generated on April 23, 2016, and the last payment made was of R700. Khadse must be sacked immediately,” she said.
