According to letter No: SSP/ACBK/FIR-10/2019/3064 dated 03-08-2019, issued by  SSP Anto Corruption Bureau ACB, has asked Mehbooba, “During the course of investigation of case FIR No 10/2019, police station ACKB dated 08-06-2019, it has surfaced that some appointments were made by Chairman J&K Bank on references and recommendations of few ministers.”

“It may please be clarified whether such references had your endorsement, verbal or otherwise for appointments in J&K Bank,” reads the letter issued by SSP ACB Srinagar Kashmir.

Meanwhile, responding to the letter issued by ACB, Mehbooba in her Tweet wrote: “Not surprised to receive a letter from the Anti-Corruption Bureau.

Such tactics won’t work.”
