Raipur (Chhattisgarh) [India], October 29 (ANI): Chhattisgarh Minister Rajesh Munat on Sunday said that he has requested Chief Minister Raman Singh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president and national leadership for a high-level inquiry into the controversial sex CD scandal, allegedly involving him.

"False news and sensation is being spread accusing me. I had said yesterday that the CD was false; it has no credibility," Munat told ANI.

Rajesh Munat also said that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) would probe to find out who was responsible for the fake CD.

"The cabinet and the whole party together made a decision that a CBI investigation will be done to find out who brought the CD into existence and who hatched the political conspiracy," asserted Munat.

He also said that the investigation should be done because the way politics was being played was "not right."

The state minister further said that he did not blame the Congress, adding that he had credibility.

"I would just like to tell them that before accusing anyone of such degrading things, get the facts right. We also do politics but if you are not accepting a particular fact then there is no need to play politics by fake accusations," Rajesh Munat added.

Meanwhile, the Chhattisgarh Government has handed over the probe to the CBI.

Earlier, journalist Vinod Verma was arrested from his residence in Indirapuram in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad on Friday on charges of blackmailing an employee of minister Rajesh Munat over his alleged obscene video. He, however, had alleged he was being framed by the state government because he possessed the minister's 'Sex CD'. (ANI)
