NEW DELHI: Even as new documents surfaced showing her endorsement for former IPL chairman Lalit Modi’s immigration to UK, Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhra Raje on Tuesday distanced herself from these papers.
Some documents released bv Lalit Modi's lawyer revealed that Raje, who then the opposition leader in state assembly, had backed Lalit’s the immigration application. The papers containing her statement said that her support should "strictly" be kept hidden from Indian authorities.
"Of course I know the family. I have always known them...(But) I do not know what documents they are talking about," Raje said on Tuesday evening as her name was dragged and linked to Lalit Modi.
Asked if there was a media trial against her, she said "that is left for you to decide."
The focus had shifted to from External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj to Raje after new papers distributed by Lalit’s lawyers surfaced.
