Punjab Vigilance Bureau summons Charanjit Channi again in assets case
On Wednesday former chief minister and Congress leader Charanjit Singh Channi has been summoned by the Punjab Vigilance Bureau to its state headquarters in Mohali for the third time for amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
An RTI revealed that when Channi was chief minister, he had spent Rs.60 lakh on his food bill in a period of three months. However, Channi has denied all the allegations of wrongdoing.
The Vigilance Bureau has been probing the assets of Channi, his brothers, family members, and some of his associates for amassing wealth more than their declared sources of income.
Earlier, Channi appeared before the investigating agency on June 14 and he was questioned for over five hours.
It has also been probing a complaint against Channi with allegations of diversion of funds from an official function for his son’s marriage.
The Vigilance Bureau on March 7 issued a lookout circular against Channi to prevent him from flying abroad.
Channi has been vocal in his criticism against Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.
