NEW DELHI: The Income Tax Department has issued notice to the Aam Admi Party over allegations that the party had received donations from some bogus companies.

Days before the Delhi Assembly polls,  a splinter faction of the party -- the AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM ) alleged that Rs 2 crore worth of donations had been made to the party on a single day using four dubious companies.

Both the BJP and the Congress had vigorously used this issue during their campaign questioning the honesty of the Arvind Kejriwal - led party.

While Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said the AAP was caught "red-handed" in receiving funds through "round-tripping" from companies which did not have any business, Prime Minister Narendra Modi targeted the party saying there is a limit to being shamelessness.

AAP has, however, rejected all the allegations.

The party made a landslide victory in the assembly polls winning 67 out of the 70 seats in the capital state. While the BJP bagged the remaining three, the Congress failed to win even a single seat at a place where it ruled almost 15 years until the recent past.
