Speaking to News 18 TV channel, Swamy said, â€śRatan Tata must be investigated for money laundering regarding the setting up of Air Asia-Vistara.â€ť
His latest comments come after Swamy told CNBC-TV 18 on Wednesday that he will submit a petition in court to ratify the claims mentioned in recently ousted Chairman of Tata Sons, Cyrus Mistryâ€™s letter to Tata Sons board.
Besides questioning his â€śinvalidâ€ť and â€śillegalâ€ť removal, Mistry in his â€śconfidentialâ€ť letter (which got leaked to the media), had said that â€śa recent forensic investigation revealed fraudulent transactions of Rs 22 crore in the Air Asia-Vistara dealâ€ť.
Swamy added that the establishment of AirAsia-Vistara deal does not comply with Indian law and the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) should take cognizance of the letter by Mistry.
A day after the shock removal of Mistry from the position of chairman of the Tata Sons board and Ratan Tataâ€™s temporary reinstatement, Swamy on Tuesday tweeted, â€śFor the record--Rattan Tata is not a Tata. His father Naval was selected from an orphanage for the childless Tata. In 2G Rattan was Rotten.â€ť
