NEW DELHI: Amidst a volley of money laundering allegations against Aam Admi Party (AAP), few days before the elections, a donor has come forward to refute the charges staking claim over the donations.

Indian citizen, Jaskirat Mann, spoke to NDTV on Tuesday and said that she along with her husband (Canadian businessman) had made a $ 1,000 donation two months back, which is currently being referred to as ‘dubious funds’. 

AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM), a group comprising former members of AAP, took a dig at AAP’s transparency claims and alleged that the party received ‘dubious funding’ through an illegal foreign organization.

Serious money laundering allegations against AAP followed this revelation.  Mann went on record to counter the allegations on Tuesday after she found her name in one of the 'dubious' cheques brandished by AVAM during the press conferences.

“After I saw my name in one of the cheques, I decided to clear the air,” she said and added that the baseless allegations are being made to defame AAP. 

When asked specifically if the Mann made the donation through a cheque, she denied saying that the donation was made through a credit card. But AAP’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal had recently stated that all donations to the party are received through cheques and debunked the money laundering charges leveled against the party.

He went ahead and invited investigation into the party’s donations by the Government.
