NEW DELHI, Dec 30 - Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today came under fresh attack over DDCA affairs with the AAP accusing him of pressurising the then Police Commissioner to �close� investigation involving a cricket club of a bank in 2011, while suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad claimed the SFIO probe report had recommended his �prosecution�.

Continuing its offensive against him, the AAP released two letters, purportedly written by Jaitley, to then Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta and then Special Commissioner Ranjit Narayan, requesting them to �fairly� deal with the matter and �close� the case since the �DDCA has done no wrong�.

The party also renewed its demand for Jaitley�s resignation in the wake of the �fresh disclosures�.

Senior AAP leader Ashutosh claimed that the letters �punctured� the Finance Minister�s repeated assertions that he was in no way connected with any wrongdoing in the Delhi and District Cricket Association, which he headed for 13 years till 2013.

Reacting to the allegations, BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao asked as to what was wrong in Jaitley writing a letter to the Police Commissioner. �He was not even in power, so the charge does not stick.�

In the letter to Narayan, Jaitley is quoted as writing that �some persons have been repeatedly approaching Delhi Police with complaints in relation to the identity of the Syndicate Bank Cricket Club�.

�The complaints are completely unsubstantiated and do not disclose any offence... I would request you to look into this matter so that it can be fairly dealt with and closed since the DDCA has done no wrong.�

Azad, suspended by BJP for anti-party activities, claimed the Serious Fraud Investigation Office probe report had recommended �prosecution� of Jaitley in the DDCA affairs even as he targeted more politicians, including party MP and BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur. � PTI
