Jha also labeled counter charges against SK Modi apprehending doubt on educational qualification of Modi’s wife and benami property owned by the BJP leader.
“Who is the owner of the plush building located at road No 13 Rajendra Nagar? Modi’s brother RK Modi has real estate business in Gurgaon and that can be linked to benami property”, he said.
