Mukesh Ambani involved in money laundering: AAP
Intensifying its attack on industrialist Mukesh Ambani, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday alleged that Ambani managed foreign direct investment (FDI) to the tune of Rs 6,530 crore through an ‘open and shut company’ based in Singapore, a major part of which was used in KG Gas basin project. The party also alleged Ambani exerted pressure on the central government to appoint a pliable officer and shunted out an honest officer to fulfill his goals.

‘The UPA government has not even bothered to investigate an open and shut case of huge money laundering done by Mukesh Ambani and his companies,’ said a statement released by AAP.

The party also alleged that the government failed to investigate into the matter despite a written recommendation from Indian High Commission in Singapore on 31 August 2011 to investigate into Bio Metrix Marketing Ltd, which is closed now. The company was reportedly run in an one-room flat and it never filed income tax returns claiming to be a small company which did not have equity and assets.

The company reportedly invested this huge amount of money in Reliance-owned companies. ‘The major chunk of this investment went into Reliance Gas Transportation Infrastructure Ltd, the company managing KG basin gas project, which is fully owned by the Ambani group,’ he claimed. The party also alleged that the owner of this open and shut company was Atul Shanti Kumar Dayal who AAP claims is a top-level officer in 32 Reliance owned companies.

AAP also alleged that R N Choubey who was Director General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) was ‘honest’ and was replaced to favour Ambani. The party alleged that the FIR registered by Arvind Kejriwal government is not being investigated properly.
