RANCHI: Hatia MLA Naveen Jaiswal has filed a complaint against Jharkhand Vikas Morcha Chief Babulal Marandi under various sections of IPC and Information Technology Act, alleging him of preparing a forged document to gain political mileage.
Jaiswal in his application to office in charge of Doranda Police Station in Ranchi has demanded immediate action against the JVM Chief so that the forged letter could not be misused by producing it to different Courts.
The complaint was lodged in the light of a letter released by Marandi through which he alleged six rebel MLAs elected on the ticket of JVM were paid Rs 11 crore for coming into BJP fold immediately after the assembly elections in 2015.
Marandi on Friday demanded CBI inquiry after presenting a letter to Governor Droupadi Murmu as proof of money trail which allegedly took place to lure the six JVM MLAs.
The letter dated January 19, 2015, was allegedly written by the then Jharkhand BJP president Ravindra Kumar Rai and addressed to BJP National President Amit Shah.
The letter, Marandi alleged, states the amount of money to be given to the six legislators elected on JVM ticket in lieu of their joining the BJP along with the facilitators and observers.
"A forged letter was written by Babulal Marandi on a forged letter pad and forged signature was done to use it publically for taking political mileage and taking advantage in the ongoing hearing done by the Assembly Speaker," stated the letter.
The act was done with an intention of presenting fake evidence against him during the Assembly hearing, it stated.
In his complaint, Jaiwal has requested to lodge FIR under sections 192, 193, 194, 406, 467, 468, 471 and 120B of IPC along with sections under Information technology Act against Marandi. FIR, however, had not been lodged till the report was being filed late in the evening.
