On Tuesday, a Jaipur court had directed the SOG to probe the role of the Lok Sabha MP from Jodhpur, and his wife Naunad Kanwar, in the Rs 884-crore Sanjivani Credit Co-operative Society fraud case that was unearthed in end-September last year.
The order was passed on the basis of a revised petition filed by two complainants from Barmer, who had invested Rs 68 lakh in the co-operative society and were denied their dues upon maturity of the sum.
Besides the BJP leader and his wife, the court has ordered the SOG to probe the role of three others, namely Mohan Kanwar, Rajendra Baheti and Kewalchand Daglia.
