If the money is not transferred then where is the money laundering?
According to Singhvi, the National Herald newspaper is published by Associated Journals Limited (AJL), which was in debt. After this Congress invested 90 crores in it over several decades. AJL did what every company in India or abroad does. The company converted its debt into equity. Thereafter, equity of Rs 90 crore was handed over to a new company Young India. Singhvi said Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and some other Congress leaders had shares in Young India. Young India was registered as a non-profit company. Through this transaction, AJL became a debt free company. Not a single asset and money has been transferred, then where is money laundering? where is the money? No money was transferred yet a money laundering case was registered.
