Former Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik has been asked by the CBI to give "some clarification" in connection with an insurance scam in the union territory.

The CBI action in connection with two FIRs it registered in April last year following allegations by Malik about awarding of contracts for a group medical insurance scheme for government employees and civil work worth Rs 2,200 crore related to the Kiru hydroelectric power project in Jammu and Kashmir.

Malik has been asked to provide details about his allegations, officials said on Thursday. It also comes days after Malik alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has no inclination to fight corruption among other things.

Malik told DH that he has "not been summoned" by the agency but sought his "availability" to provide "some clarifications" regarding the corruption cases. He said he has been asked to be present at the CBI guesthouse on Akbar Road.

"They want certain clarifications for which they want my presence. I am going to Rajasthan so I have given them dates from April 27 to 29 when I am available. Probably, I may go on April 28," he said.

Malik tweeted later, "I have exposed the sins of some people by speaking the truth. Maybe that's why the call has come. I am the son of a farmer, I will not panic. I stand by the truth."
