Mr. Kesri, who had served as the treasurer of the Congress party for many years before becoming its President, was under investigation for the evasion of income tax by his party. Mr. Kesri’s claim that during the financial years 1992-1995 the party’s income had been “nil” was rejected and 40% tax, plus interest, was slapped on to an income assessed at Rs. 251.3 million, besides this, Mr. Kesri was also responsible for his party’s receiving foreign contributions worth Rs. 37.5 million from bogus firms registered abroad. As treasurer, he was responsible for his party’s failure to report the receipt of these funds, which violated the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act. This Act bans political parties from receiving foreign funds except from Non-Resident Indians. And he facing charge of Muder of Dr.Tanwar, who rendered unofficial “duties” to Mr. Kesari, included supplying women and administering imported “vitality” injections to then 75 year-old Mr. Kesri. Dr. Tanwar was murdered on October 30th, 1993. His head, along with some of his brutally severed limbs, were discovered in a plastic bag in one part of New Delhi, while some other limbs were found at another site ten days later. The gruesome murder is said to have taken place at Mr. Kesri’s own residence in the presence of two senior Congress leaders.
