The long arm of law, finally, caught up with veteran Mumbai Congressman Kripa Shankar Singh. The Bombay High Court, in a scathing order on Feb 22, directed the Mumbai police commissioner to register an FIR for criminal misconduct and other charges, attach the family’s moveable and immoveable properties and get government sanction for Singh’s prosecution.

Two years after Outlook broke the story on Singh’s disproportionate assets, benami transactions by him and five family members, and of him having two PAN cards (The Charcoal Footprints, Mar 1, 2010), the wheels of justice began moving. Based on the story, businessman and RTI activist Sanjay Tiwari filed a PIL in the HC; he obtained additional information and alleged that Singh had assets worth over Rs 320 crore. Singh had sent Outlook a defamation notice then.
