KPCC President Dikeshivakumar’s house has been found to be a property of CBI officials to carry out raids on the property. It was also alleged that Dikeshi had misused public funds during his tenure as Energy Minister.
It is in this backdrop that the CBI raid was revealed. The CBI had sought permission from the state government to carry out the raid. It is believed that the CBI carried out the attack immediately after the government’s green signal.
What is this previous case?
Earlier the Enforcement Directorate and IT Department had held an inquiry into the illegal asset acquisition case. Their home was attacked several times. Dikeshi Tihar had also gone to jail in that case. Dikeshi then filed a petition in the state high court to dismiss the case.
But the High Court rejected the application. The CBI has launched a raid on the case. Tax fraud and money laundering are not under investigation by the CBI. They are all IT and ED investigations. The CBI has the power to investigate misappropriation of public money and illicit property.
