NEW DELHI:The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Monday refuted claims of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia that its Deputy Legal Advisor Jitendra Kumar, committed suicide as he was pressurized to make a strong false case against him, the probe agency statement said.
In a press communique, CBI said a press conference held by Manish Sisodia, one of the FIR-named accused in a case pertaining to Delhi Excise Policy, stated that Jitendra Kumar, committed suicide as he was pressurized to make a strong false case against the Delhi Deputy CM. CBI strongly refuted this “mischievous and misleading” statement by Sisodia.
“It is clarified that Jitendra Kumar was in no way connected with the investigation of this case. He was Deputy Legal Advisor in charge of the prosecution, in which capacity he was supervising prosecutors conducting the trial of already charge-sheeted cases in Delhi,” claimed CBI.
