Subramanian Swamy seeks a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe against Ratan Tata
india, October 29: Subramanian Swamy Rajya Sabha MP of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday seeking a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe against Ratan Tata.
Swamy has levied allegations of money laundering against Ratan Tata. “Ratan Tata must be investigated for money laundering regarding the setting up of Air Asia-Vistara," he said.
Swamy's recent comments came after he told CNBC-TV 18 on Wednesday about submitting a petition in court to ratify the claims mentioned in ousted Chairman of Tata Sons Cyrus Mistry to the board.
Mistry in his 'confidential' letter to the board which got leaked in the media, had mentioned that 'a recent forensic investigation revealed fraudulent transactions of Rs 22 crore in the air Asia-Vistara deal.'
Meanwhile, Subramanian Swamy took cognisance of the matter and mentioned that Air Asia-Vistara deal does not comply with Indian law and the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) should take cognizance of the letter by Mistry.
Post removal of Cyrus Mistry from the position of Chairman and temporary reinstatement of Ratan Tata as interim chairman, Swamy had written on his Twitter account, "For the record--Rattan Tata is not a Tata. His father Naval was selected from an orphanage for the childless Tata. In 2G Rattan was Rotten."
