Senior Advocate Indira Jaising denies receiving money from PFI for anti-CAA protests

Bar & Bench

Senior Advocate Indira Jaising has issued a statement denying the receipt of any money for undertaking protests against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA).

Zee News had earlier published a report claiming that Jaising, along with fellow Senior Advocates Kapil Sibal and Dushyant Dave, had received money from Islamic outfit Popular Front of India (PFI).

According to the report, Sibal had received Rs. 77 lakh, Dave Rs. 11 lakh, and Jaising Rs. 4 lakh from PFI for carrying out anti-CAA protests. This apparently came to light after Zee News did an analysis of 73 bank accounts of PFI.

The lawyers, however, have denied taking any money from PFI for the purpose of anti-CAA protests. In a statement issued online, Jaising stated,

I completely and vehemently deny having received any money from PFI at any point of time, or receiving any money from any person of organisation in relation to anti-CAA protests.
