Relief for Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat in ACB case

Jaipur – Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat has got a huge relief from a lower court in Jaipur in ACB case against him allegedly conspiring for dislodging a duly elected government in July 2020. Chief Whip of Congress in Rajasthan assembly Mahesh Joshi had complained to the Anti Corruption Bureau regarding the matter during the attempted coup by Sachin Pilot in July 2020. Mahesh Joshi had told ACB that Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and others were involved in the conspiracy on the basis of recorded conversations over phone.

ACB had pleaded to the court in Jaipur for collecting voice samples of Gajendra Singh Shekhawat for which he had not responded to ACB notices. Court observed that ACB is trying to make it a tool in its investigation against Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. Court rejected the plea of ACB against Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

ACB had argued that other accused Sanjay Jain had given statement to the ACB on alleged involvement of Gajendra Singh Shekhawat in the conspiracy. According to the law, the order for voice sample or medical test can only be given when person is in custody of the authority.

Court also returned the plea of investigation officer which pleaded for voice sample of Sanjay Jain, a co-accused in the case along with Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.
