Rahul accuses CBI Gujarat officer of helping Mallya escape

New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused CBI Joint Director A.K.Sharma, who is also a Gujarat IPS officer, of helping fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya to escape from the country.

He said Sharma, who was posted in the CBI in 2015, was also "in charge of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi's escape plans".

The Congress President also alleged that Sharma is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "blue-eyed boy" in the CBI.

"CBI Joint Director A.K. Sharma, weakened Mallya's "Look Out" notice, allowing Mallya to escape. Mr Sharma, a Gujarat cadre officer, is the PM's blue-eyed boy in the CBI. The same officer was in charge of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi's escape plans. Ooops...investigation!" Gandhi tweeted.

Earlier this week, he had accused Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of "colluding" with Mallya to help him flee the country and demanded his resignation.

Gandhi had asked why had Jaitley not informed the investigative agencies about his meeting with the chief of the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

Mallya, who left India on March 2, 2016, faces charges of defrauding banks to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.

Mallya is currently in London where a court finished hearing on India's extradition case against him on Wednesday and is due to pronounce its verdict on December 10.
