Patna: Rekha Modi, cousin of Sushil Modi has been accused in Srijan Scam. Allegedly, she received crores of rupees from Srijan accounts. After her name surfaced, she absconded.

It may be mentioned that Sushil Modi was the whistle blower in scams against Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family.

According to a report published in The Morning Chronicle, during the investigation, it was found that office bearers of Srijan used to give expensive gifts to bureaucrats, politicians and their families. Ravi Jalan, Proprietor of Jalan Gems made a confession that Rekha Modi favoured him in return of expensive diamond jewels.

However, Sushil Modi claimed that his relationship with his sister is not good. Reacting to it, Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, “Modi is really weird, when he gets trapped in a scandal, he denies relationship with his kith and kin”.

It is also reported that in the Srijan scam, names of several BJP leaders including cabinet minister Giriraj Singh, Shahnawaz Hussain, BJP parliamentarian Nishikant Dubey have been surfaced. They were associated directly or indirectly with late Secretary Manorama Devi, her son Amit Kumar and daughter in law Priya.
