Bengaluru: Special Investigation Team (SIT) has said it will continue to probe the multi-crore I Monetary Advisory (IMA) scam, until Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) takes over the case.
SIT sources explained that, until the notification is done by the central government in this regard, they will continue with the IMA investigation.
Though there is no confirmation on the submission of the chargesheet in the case, SIT is busy in documentation process.
It is said that the kingpin Mohammed Mansoor Khan has given a 55-page statement before the SIT officers. He had also given the details of his three email accounts.
Mansoor Khan had also given details in connection to input data stored in Amazon cloud. It is said that, SIT had got details of 7,000 transaction copies of money movement. Mansoor has told officers that he had bought furniture from China and it was given to an IPS officer. The said officer is building a house in New Delhi.
The scam kingpin also stated that, he had given money to a former chief minister through an auditor. Mansoor had transferred money to his auditor’s account. The auditor in turn had given money to an inspector. This inspector had given money to that former chief minister, the sources claimed.
Mansoor Khan who had so far not spoken about a former deputy chief minister, has now said that he had sent bounty through a top bureaucrat to him also.
Sources explained that, by the time CBI takes over the case, SIT might have already submitted its chargesheet to the court which will run into thousands of pages.
