Will produce fresh evidence against Khurshid: Kejriwal

India Against Corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal Sunday said his organisation will produce fresh evidence against Law Minister Salman Khurshid, whom he has accused of forgery and embezzlement of funds through an NGO with which he and his wife are associated.

"We will produce fresh evidence against Salman Khurshid at 11 a.m. Monday," Kejriwal said hours after Khurshid produced pictures and documents to prove camps were held for the disabled in Uttar Pradesh, for which the funds were utilised.

The minister also rebutted allegations of forgery and embezzlement of funds against an NGO with which he and his wife are associated.

However, Kejriwal dismissed Khurshid's defence. "Till Khurshid remains the law minister, he can destroy each and every evidence against him. There will be no fair inquiry into it," he said.

Kejriwal also questioned why Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is silent on the episode.

"Why is prime minister silent over the issue? Does he think Khurshid need to resign?" he asked.
