New Delhi: BJP headquarters in-charge Shyam
Jaju, embroiled in a court case regarding fake PAN cards in
his name and disproportionate assets, today said all
allegations against him were false and fabricated and aimed at
politically maligning him.
"I am shocked to see the news item published in all major
newspapers about issuing of summons to me by Additional Chief
Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Pandey regarding alleged
involvement in financial irregularities," Jaju said in a
"Till today I have not received any formal summons or
notice from Income Tax Department or Police Department nor
they called upon me till today to ascertain the allegations
levelled against me in an anonymous letter," he added.
Jaju was summoned by the court to appear on July 24.
There were allegations that Jaju had lodged a "fake FIR"
against one Chandan Kumar Jha for possessing forged PAN cards
in Jaju`s name and had signed an MoU with a firm called S K
Infotech to invest Rs four crore even as he has been filing
income tax return for only Rs 2-3 lakh. It was also alleged
that he even tried to flee the country last week.
"The entire allegations levelled against me are false and
fabricated and are foiled against me to politically malign
me," Jaju said.
Clarifying his stand, Jaju said Jha went to the bank
where he held an account and enquired into his personal
details to "defame" him. Jaju then lodged an FIR against Jha.
Jaju insisted that he was not fleeing the country and
had no foreign bank account.
"I want to make it clear that I have never visited any
foreign country in my life, the statement regarding foreign
account is baseless," he said.
"I have no connection of any kind with any S K Infotech
Pvt Ltd," Jaju said.
