Raipur: The Congress on Thursday trained its guns on Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh over his son's alleged ownership of assets in the British Virgin Islands.
Amid a political row over the Panama Papers revelations, the Congress leader Jairam Ramesh cited a previous report of International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to allege Singh was holding offshore assets.
The opposition party also demanded a Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team probe against all those whose names have cropped up in the 'Panama Papers' case till date.
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said that an ICIJ leak about two years back revealed Raman Singh's son Abhishek Singh name. The list spelled his name as 'Abhishak Singh', with an 'a'. A company -- Quest Heights Ltd -- was said to be registered in the name of 'Abhishak Singh'.
Abhishek Singh is a Lok Sabha member from Rajanandgaon in Chhattisgarh.
The Congress also shared a link which showed that 'Abhishak Singh' was one of the shareholders of Quest Heights Ltd. The connection between Abhishek Singh and 'Abhishak Singh' was brought out by the address provided: c/o Raman Medical Store New Bus Stand Vindhyavasini Ward, Ward no. 20, Kawardha. Kawardha.
BJP MP Abhishek Singh rejected as "false, mischievous and politically motivated" the Congress charge against him.
