The department reportedly recovered some documents relating to a few transactions being made by at least three firms which had a link to Jain.

However, Jain said it was a “re-assessment” of an old case. He also added,”This is not an investigation, it is just a re-assessment. I have been called as a witness. In the past, I had invested in these companies which are being re-assessed,” he told the reporters.

The AAP leader went on to say, “The Delhi Chief Minister will make a big expose in the Delhi Assembly two days later. I dare the TV channels to air it,” he said.
