New Delhi, January 14
The CBI has booked its four personnel, including two deputy superintendents of police, for allegedly receiving bribe to compromise on investigation against companies accused of bank fraud.
The probe agency on Thursday started searches at its training academy in Ghaziabad and 13 other locations, including Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Meerut and Kanpur, after registering a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act, said officials.
“The searches were conducted at 14 locations linked to the accused,” CBI spokesperson RC Joshi said. Those facing probe are DSPs RK Rishi and RK Sangwan, Inspector Kapil Dhankad and steno Samir Kumar Singh.
Though the CBI didn’t share much details about the case, sources said its own personnel were under scanner for allegedly taking huge sums of bribe from the accused companies being probed by them.
The situation became embarrassing for the agency as it had to search premises of Rishi who is posted in the CBI Academy where the probe agency prepares its officers for future role. In addition, cadets from foreign countries are also trained at the state-of-the-art academy in Ghaziabad.
