Srinagar, Aug 4: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has asked former Chief Minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti to explain her position before it regarding the illegal recruitments in Jammu and Kashmir Bank.
In a letter No: SSP/ACBK/ FIR-10/2019/3064 dated 03-08-2019, SSP, ACB has asked Mehbooba: “During the course of investigation of case FIR No 10/2019, Police Station ACKB dated 08-06-2019, it has surfaced that some appointments were made by Chairman J&K Bank on references and recommendations of few Ministers.”
“It may please be clarified whether such references had your endorsement, verbal or otherwise for appointments in J&K Bank,” it added.
Mehbooba said she was not surprised to receive a letter from the ACB.
“Not surprised to receive a letter from the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Concerted efforts are being made to browbeat mainstream leaders & thwart potential efforts for a collective response. I am too small an entity vis a vis the cause that unites us today. Such tactics won’t work (sic),” she tweeted.
