Evidence not tampered in MP minister sodomy case, says Shivraj Singh Chouhan

Dismissing reports that he had seen the CD purportedly showing former state finance minister Raghavji in a compromising situation, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Monday the evidence in the case has not been tampered.

‘I am saying with full authority that the evidence in the case was not being tampered with,’ Chouhan told reporters in the state assembly press room. ‘I have not seen the CD,” he asserted. Leader of opposition in state assembly, Ajay Singh had said on Sunday that Chouhan himself had reportedly seen the CD, which purportedly showed the scandal-hit minister Raghavji in a compromising position, which was objectionable.

‘If former Union law minister Ashwini Kumar can be asked to resign for having summoned a file from the CBI, Chouhan should also be asked to resign,’ he had demanded.
If in the BJP’s view, Ashwini Kumar had tampered with evidence, then the same thing had been done by Chouhan by reportedly asking the police to provide the CD to him for watching it at his residence, Ajay had said. Replying to questions by mediapersons, Chouhan said that the BJP had taken all actions required in the Raghavji case and there was nothing more to say.
