New Delhi. CBI has announced that they will auction the clean chit that they had reserved for Ottavio Quattrocchi, the Italian businessman accused of facilitating kickbacks and bribes in Bofors scam who is now dead.
“We had created this clean chit after years of hard work and we just can’t let it go waste,” a CBI officer told Faking News on conditions of anonymity, “We will auction it to someone else who would need it.”
“There are many who need it, haven’t you seen the long list of scams in recent years?” the official retorted when this reporter asked if there were enough takers.
Sources confirm that CBI has already contacted various people involved with “similar” scams like Chopper scam, Tatra trucks scam, Coffin scam, etc.
“But we are not limited to army equipment related scams only; we can give the clean chit to others too if the price is right,” the anonymous CBI official clarified.
Sources further reveal that CBI is afraid that Warren Anderson, accused in Bhopal Gas Tragedy and now 92 years old, could also die soon and their hard work in another high profile case involving a respected state guest could go waste.
They are trying to convince the high command to auction at least one more chit whenever the clean chit of Quattrocchi goes under the hammer.
