Rumours about Nirav Modi files nailed
Recently, fire gutted an Income Tax building in Mumbai. It was reported widely that, due to the untoward incident, files related to Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi got destroyed. Many feared that this will affect the ongoing investigations against the offenders.
Income Tax Department, however, has officially denied that the records/documents relating to the investigation were gutted. The Department has described the reports as "misdirected". Yet, the lie has been repeated by sections of media.
Calling it a "convenient turn of events", the Congress Party has tried to spread the canard that there was a conspiracy behind the fire accident.
