Ex-CM’s Secy denied issuing recommendation letter
New Delhi: Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s political secretary Pawan Khera has denied issuing any recommendation letter to a man for a job in NMDC, Delhi Police today told a court hearing a case of cheating.
Investigating Officer of the case filed his Action Taken Report (ART) in the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Navjeet Budhiraja, saying “For the said recommendation letter he (Khera) has stated that it was neither issued from his office nor bears his signature.”
The report filed by IO Hukamvir Attri further said that “he (Khera) stated that if anyone has cheated the complainant using a forged letter and false claims of association with him to get job, strict legal action should be taken against him as he is defaming his name as well as of the Congress.”
The report of IO even raised question on the jurisdiction of the case under Malviya Nagar Police Station.
“In view of the facts and circumstances, it is found that neither any monetary transaction/making of documents nor any meeting between complainant and alleged accused took place in the jurisdiction of Police Station Ambedkar Nagar. Hence the course of action does not arise there,” the report said.
The matter has now been fixed for hearing on March 28.
On February 17, the court had asked the IO to file the ATR in two weeks time on a complaint filed by Ambedkar Nagar resident Rajpal Singh alleging that Khera in connivance with others had cheated him by asking him to deposit Rs six lakh in the Congress fund in lieu of government jobs to his sons at New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC).
Singh claimed that he had filed a complaint in the Majnu Ka Tila Police Station to conduct an enquiry but the police officials neither investigated the matter nor registered any case till date.
