The FIR reads, “In one meeting, Aniksha said her father had close relations with leaders of various political parties and later handed over a lakhota (paper envelope) to (one of the staffers) instructing her to give it to me. When I opened it, I found a handwritten note, but since I did not understand the content, I kept the paper aside,”
According to the FIR, Aniksha called Ms. Fadnavis on February 16 at 9.30 p.m. and informed her that her father was facing charges and offered her Rs. 1 crore if she could clear him. Following this incident Fadnavis filed the report.
