Pilot demanded an inquiry by independent investigative body.

"We demand that an inquiry into the case be done by an independent investigative body headed by a High Court judge and not by state police or an agency influenced by the government," Pilot told reporters in Dausa.

He said the Congress leaders have no faith in the BJP government in the state which he alleged is indulging in ‘politics of vendetta’.
    
He alleged the government is working with malicious intentions and the case was lodged to malign the image of Congress leadership.

Rajasthan Police had earlier on Wednesday filed an FIR naming former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Pilot and several others in an ambulance scam.

The police filed the FIR over allegations of financial irregularities to the tune of Rs 2.56 crore in operating '108' ambulance service during the previous Congress regime.

Former state health minister A A Khan, Karti Chidambaram, son of former union minister P Chidambaram and Ravi Krishna, son of former union minister Vayalar Ravi, Sweta Mangal, then CEO of Ziqitza Healthcare, Shaffi Mather, former Economic Advisor to Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and the Director of NRHM also figured in the FIR.
