Gadkari issue: Now, an astrologer is a director in a Purti investor company

New Delhi: More details have emerged on Wednesday on shell companies of BJP president Nitin Gadkari's Purti group. It’s not just drivers and accountants, now an astrologer has emerged as a director in a Purti investor company which itself seems to be a shell company.

The documents show Ashwami Sales and Marketing Ltd, which owns equity in Purti, is non existent. When CNN-IBN inquired after one of its directors, Hanumant Prasad Sharma, it was found that he was in fact an astrologer by profession. When CNN-IBN enquired at the registered address, Sharma's wife revealed that he was in fact in Rajasthan and that she had never heard of a company called Ashwami. Ashwami is the same company that has Gadkari's driver as a director.

“I don't know what company you are talking about. He works from home as an astrologer,” said wife of Hanumant Sharma.
