Complaint filed against Khaira to ED over increase in property
Jalandhar – A local NGO on Tuesday lodged a complaint against Leader of Opposition in Vidhan Sabha Sukhpal Singh Khaira with Enforcement Directorate (ED) Jalandhar, blaming him of increasing his property through illegal means in the last 10 years. Chairman of Sarv Sukh Seva Mission, Arvind Mishra, who is also a SAD leader said that ED officials should probe that how Khaira’s property increased from Rs 2 crore to Rs 66 crore in the last 10 years.“We have demanded stringent action against Khaira over increase in his moveable and immoveable assets, the details of which were provided by him in his affidavit submitted to the Election Commission of India (ECI),” he said. In the complaint written to Joint Director ED, Mishra said that Khaira has violated the terms and conditions of Money Laundering Act and has also violated the rules of FERA and FEMA. He Said that in 2007, Khiara had filed an affidavit before the ECI mentioning that his net worth was Rs 2 Crore. “However, now Khaira’s net worth including his moveable and immoveble assets were Worth Rs 66 crore, which raises a question over the sudden increase in his property. The ED should conduct a probe to ascertain the source of income of Khaira,” Mishra added.Notably, the court of Sandeep Singh Jossan in Fazilka has issued non-bailable warrants against Khaira as accused in connection with drugs smuggling case. “Sukhpal Khaira has direct links with drug mafia and he has been doing illegal business of money laundering. This is the reason of increase in his income within a short time,” he added. Meanwhile SAD district president Gurcharan Singh Channi said that Khaira should resign on moral grounds. “Khaira has been advocating clean politics. Now, that he was facing allegations in connection with a drugs case, he should prove his stand and resign as Leader of Opposition,” Channi said.
