NEW DELHI: Amar Pratap Singh, the former CBI chief who has been booked by the agency, today claimed he was being “targeted” for his personal equations with controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi and said he would welcome a fair and impartial inquiry in the case by the probe agencies.
His statement came on a day when media reports claimed that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) would soon begin a process of attaching his properties in connection with its probe into an alleged Prevention of Money Laundering case registered against Qureshi.
“I have read the newspaper reports. It appears I am being targeted, but am not sure of the reasons why,” Singh said in a statement here.
Strongly denying the charges levelled against him by the CBI which had registered a case against him last month and carried out searches at his residence, Singh, who was the CBI Director from 2010 to 2012, said “I welcome any CBI and ED investigation and sincerely hope that they will be fair and impartial.
“I shall be fully cooperating with any such investigation,” Singh, a 1974-batch IPS officer, said. (AGENCIES)
