BJP leader and advocate Ajay Agrawal, who has been pursuing the Rs 64-crore Bofors pay-off case in the Supreme Court and trial court, today wrote a letter to Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik urging him to reveal names of Congress leaders involved in the politically-sensitive scam. Malik, who was appointed as governor by the BJP-led NDA government last year, had on May 18 praised Rajiv Gandhi at a function in Patna and said that the former prime minister was a “good and honest” person and some other Congress leaders were involved in the Bofors scam. He, however, had not named anybody. In his letter to the governor, he said if Malik knew anything about the scam then he should give all the information.

The CBI had, in February, moved a district court here seeking re-investigation of the scam. However, the matter has not been able to make progress as the original case records are in the custody of the Supreme Court. The trial court decided to take up the matter after the summer vacation. Agrawal had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Rae Bareli against the then Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
