Mulayam DA case: a clear picture is yet to emerge

Lucknow,June 15(HS): What is the status of the “status report” submitted in the Supreme Court in Disproportionate Assets case against  Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav and his two sons including former chief minister Akhiulesh  Yadav?

Some newspapers had published reports last month saying that the investigating agency Central Bureau of Investigation [CBI] had given a clean chit to them and closed the case.These reports had appeared  two days before the announcement  of results of recent general elections following speculations of hung parliament and SP holding talks with other “like-minded” parties.

Now,after a landslide BJP victory and SP’s “humiliating” defeat, some other reports are in circulation.These reports claim that the CBI had  neither submitted a status nor  an analysis report giving a clean chit to the family.

On behalf of the family an affidavit was filed in the apex court with reference to these reports recently in response to a notice by the court issued in March last.It was done in response to a petition filed by an activist ,Vishwanath Chaturvedi ,urging the Court to issue a directive to the CBI to file a status report.

It has been in the news since 2007.The Court had asked the CBI  that year to investigate and find out if the family had acquired properties disproportionate to the known sources of income. It was challged by Mulayam.However,the Court agreed  that no investigation should be made into the assets of his daughter-in-law as she was not a public figure but asked the agency to go ahead with investigation into assets of others.

On the eve of general elections,the petititioner had gone to the Court again to know the status of the case. Mulayam had called it “politically motivated” and attached no significance to it.However,the latest reports suggest that it is a serious matter and that the family is not out of the woods yet.
