AHMEDABAD: The report carried by this newspaper about AAP’s suspected hawala scandal is true, Gujarat Home Minister Harsh Sanghvi said on Saturday. “Black money was sent by AAP to Gujarat through hawala and angadia from Delhi, Punjab and other channels. This money has been caught in Bardoli, Ahmedabad and other places. Their (AAP) Bardoli candidate has accepted that this money came from AAP’s Delhi office,” Sanghvi said.

“He got the money through angadia. Where does this money come from? This question should be asked to AAP leaders,” Sanghavi said.
