Income authorities probing AAP MLA's fake companies: Kapil Mishra

New Delhi: Former Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra on Tuesday claimed that the income tax authorities have started probing the allegations raised by him against fake companies registered in the name of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Shivcharan Goyal.

Mishra told media, "The income tax department has started investigations against the fake companies registered in the name of AAP MLA Shivcharan Goyal."

Earlier Mishra approached the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to submit evidences of corruption against Arvind Kejriwal.

Mishra has alleged that for three continuous years, black money was converted into white and spent on foreign trips of AAP leaders.

"AAP did not inform about some of its funding which it received from fake companies," he said.

Mishra targeted Kejriwal and revealed that 16 shell companies deposited money worth crores in the AAP's bank accounts.

"These fake companies are registered in the name of AAP MLA from Moti Nagar, Shivcharan Goyal. These companies have given Rs. two crore to Kejriwal. The funds received from these companies were sent to same branch of Axis Bank where there were allegations of converting black money into white at the time of demonetisation," he added.
