Additonal Director General of Police (Law and Order) Brijlal said that 25 companies have been amalgamated into Sarvottam Cap Limited.

“The FIR has been lodged under various sections of IPC (Indian Penal Code), Prevention of Corruption Act and Prevention of Laundering Act,” he said.

Amar Singh Friday filed a police complaint against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati in Kolkata alleging she had hatched a “political conspiracy” against him.
