In a massive twist to the Aircel Maxis case, top ED officer Rajeshwar Singh, who was investigating charges against P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram, has written a sensational letter. Republic TV has accessed the letter, in which the ED officer has levelled damning charges against his seniors and the Chidambarams in connection with the Aircel Maxis case. The letter has been addressed to the Director of the Enforcement Directorate and was written on June 11.
In the sensational letter, the top ED officer has alleged that the former Union Minister P Chidambaram made his life hell and that an attempt was made to remove him from the probe.
‘’Mr P Chidambaram made my life an accentuated hell as I was investigating him and his son Karthi. An attempt was made to remove me from the investigations… Mr Chidambaram sported an open and direct grudge against the undersigned,’’ said Singh.
The ED officer then made a sensational charge against his bosses, saying they have sided with ‘’scamsters and their affiliates’’.
‘’What thoroughly baffles the undersigned, is the animosity you have fashioned against me by siding with scamsters and their affiliates in a sustained manner. It has become more than difficult for me to survive this continued onslaught and persistent vilification from all the quarters for doing my job,’’ said the top ED officer.
The ED is yet to respond to the damning charges levelled in the letter.
Earlier in the day, Supreme Court allowed the government to probe the allegations against the Joint Director of ED, Rajeshwar Singh. The government will examine the correction of the allegations against Rajeshwar Singh. The Supreme Court ordered that it is the Centre which will decide whether to keep ED investigating officer Rajeshwar Singh or remove him. One Rajneesh Kapur had filed petition in the apex court seeking investigation against Singh in a disproportionate assets case.
