Bulandshahr: Even as Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid produced lists of beneficiaries of aid given by his trust, the Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust, on Sunday amidst allegations of corruption and misuse of funds by the NGO, CNN-IBN met a few of them in Bulandshahr who said that they had received the implements and equipment only a few days ago.

Rekha, a differently-abled girl said that she got crutches and that she got them on Sunday. Another person, Robin, said that he received a cycle on Sunday. Former DM of Bulandshahr, Bhayopaal Singh has demanded an investigation against the trust. "They would have sent someone here at least. The investigations should happen."

Meanwhile, Deputy Speaker in the Delhi Legislative Assembly Amrish Gautam said that camps were held and equipment were distributed. "We are saying that this NGO did conduct camps. They did a camp for the handicapped. I was there at the camp myself. On August 16, 2010, equipment were given to everyone. I don't want to argue on this."
