Anna Hazare allegations on donations- IT enquiry sought

Anna Hazare allegations on donations- IT enquiry sought
I have sought an Income Tax enquiry about the various allegations made by anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare in the alleged video of December 2012regarding misuse and misappropriation of donations raised during Ram Lila ground agitations. 
In the complaint to the Chairman, Central Board of Direct Taxes, I said that this alleged video-recording, where Sri Hazare is heard saying that at Ram Lila fasts, more than 3 crore people gave donations and all this money collected in his name has been misappropriated, needs to be enquired into, as per provisions of the Income Tax Act 1961.
I have said that Sri Hazare’s voice is well-known and easily recognized and seems his own in this video surfacing in November this year, hence his allegations being serious in nature need to be immediately investigated.

अन्ना हजारे के चंदा सम्बंधित आरोप- इनकम टैक्स जांच की मांग
मैंने प्रख्यात सामाजिक कार्यकर्ता अन्ना हजारे के दिसंबर 2012 के कथित विडियो में रामलीला मैदान में प्राप्त चंदे के दुरुपयोग और अनुचित उपयोग के सम्बन्ध में लगाए गए आरोपों की इनकम टैक्स जांच की मांग की है.
केन्द्रीय प्रत्यक्ष कर बोर्ड के अध्यक्ष को भेजी अपनी शिकायत में मैंने कहा है कि इस कथित विडियो जिसमें श्री हजारे को यह कहते सुना गया है कि रामलीला उपवास में दौरान तीन करोड़ से अधिक लोगों ने उनके नाम पर चंदा दिया जिसे गलत उद्देश्यों से हड़प लिया गया है, की इनकम टैक्स अधिनियम 1961 के उल्लंघन की दृष्टि से जांच होनी चाहिए.
मैंने कहा कि श्री हजारे की आवाज़ काफी जानी-पहचानी है  और इस वर्ष नवम्बर में आई इस विडियो में सुनाई दे रही आवाज़ हूबहू उन्ही की जान पड़ती है, अतः ये आरोप काफी गंभीर हैं और इनकी तत्काल जांच आवश्यक है.

Subject- Enquiry into the allegations made by social activist Sri Anna Hazare as regards money collection in his name and its alleged siphoning off

                I present before you an alleged video-recording of Sri Anna Hazare, a noted social activist where he is alleged to have said-“
Ab jaise main ramlila me baith gaya. 3 crore se jyada logon ne paisa diya vo mere naam par. Main 5 rupaya bhi nahi liya. Doosra anna hazare ke naam par itna vo data collection kiya, kya kiya, to itna sab kiya., naam mera use kiya, jo data collect hua uska istemal election ke liye hua. Jo data collect hua uska upayopg election ke liye ho raha hai. Hamaare naam par jo paisa collection hua us paise kaa upayog (nahi ho raha hai). Baat barabar hai.”
This is said to be December 2012 video recording which is available at the youtube link- . This video came in public domain in November 2013.
While a part of these alleged statements are more political in nature (related with data collection), but specific allegations as regards collection of huge money in the garb of donations and its inappropriate use has also been specifically mentioned (related with alleged money collection).
The voice of Sri Hazare is so well-known now that it is easily recognized by one and all, including the complainant. To the best of my understanding, this seems to be the actual/real voice of Sri Hazare which he has also not negated so far.
This seems to be a matter of great importance to your office and work-assignment because it is being said- (a) that huge money has been collected in unrecorded and possibly unauthorized manner (b) this money has been misused (may be swindled or used for unauthorized and inappropriate purposes).
To my knowledge, CBDT is made exactly for these kinds of assignments and hence I make the following request-
1.       Kindly undertake an enquiry/investigation in the matter including the veracity of this alleged video and its content and bring out the truth, including any inappropriate use of money collection in the manner being alleged by Sri Hazare, in light of the legal provisions enshrined in the Income Tax Act 1961 and its accompanied rules and regulations
