Enforcement Directorate (ED) affidavit in High Court a bundle of lies, fabricated and a manipulated document aimed at my character assassination under a well plannedpolitical vendetta drive by the BJP government for supporting the farmers agitation, says MLA Sukhpal Singh  Khaira

In a hard hitting statement released here today Sukhpal Singh Khaira MLA and former Leader of Opposition strongly rebutted the cock and bull story presented by the ED in their affidavit to the High Court yesterday.

Khaira said the BJP government was targeting him under a well planned political vendetta drive merely because he was a strong votary of the farmers agitation and opposed tooth and nail the erroneous anti people policies of the BJP government.

Khaira said ED has fabricated and cooked up a maliciously false story as a part of their vilification campaign against him aimed at his character assassination and also to adversely influence the judiciary.

Khaira said what a team of 100 ED officials have done after their multiple raids and weeks of investigations was actually the job of one Income Tax inspector.

Khaira also trashed the another cock and bull story that Gurdev Singh presently sentenced to life imprisonment in the Fazilka NDPS case ever financed his election etc. because ever since his arrest under the NDPS case in 2015 he has been in jail, so how would he pay me money or fund my election? Khaira said there was no complaint or any NDPS case against Gurdev Singh prior to 2015 so how would he receive drug money in his elections prior to 2015 by Gurdev Singh? Khaira reminded the ED that any statement of an accused taken in police custody is inadmissible in the court of law.

Khaira said the biggest charge of ED that he had deposited Rs. 4.86 crore in his accounts during the last 12 years but had shown only Rs. 99 lac to Income Tax department is an epitome of fabrication by ED because they have also showed approx..Rs. 3 crore loans from different banks during the last decade as his income.

Debunking the other charge that he had deposited Rs. 84 lac cash into his various accounts during the last 12 years, Khaira said the ED forgot that he has approx. Rs. 25 lac of annual income from agriculture sources. Khaira said although most of the cash deposits during these years were part of interest payment of loans but he wondered why a person with an annual agriculture income of Rs. 25 lac can’t deposit approx. Rs. 7 lac each year into his accounts (Rs. 84 lacs divided into 12 years)?

Trashing the charges that his family received Rs. 64 lac from the account of his son in law Inderveer Singh, he said Mehtab Khaira his son was paid approx. Rs. 1 lac PM as legal retainer to his company. He said his son in law contributed approx. Rs. 20 lac as capital into a newly formed partnership firm Stonemaison, to start aentrepreneur construction firm with his family. Khaira said rest of the money given by his son in law through cheques is a personal loan to pay interest on his pending loans. Khaira asked ED is it wrong to take loan through cheque from a close family member?

About foreign funding Khaira strongly denied any such transfers and said even the ED in their affidavit have called it “suspicious transactions” about which they are totally unsure.

Khaira also trashed the another cock and bull story that Gurdev Singh presently sentenced to life imprisonment in the Fazilka NDPS case ever financed his election etc. because ever since his arrest under the NDPS case in 2015 he has been in jail, so how would he pay me money or fund my election? Khaira said there was no complaint or any NDPS case against Gurdev Singh prior to 2015 so how would he receive drug money in his elections prior to 2015 by Gurdev Singh? Khaira reminded the ED that any statement of an accused taken in police custody is inadmissible in the court of law.

Khaira counter questioned the ED that even if we were to believe their pre postorous allegations, where is the case of money laundering in all these charges? He further stated that all his bank accounts are legitimate and there are neither any benami bank accounts orbenami transactions. Khaira also denied having any multiple or fake passports as stated by ED in their press release dated 09.03.2021 on the day of raids.
