New Delhi, Jan 14: The CBI has booked its four personnel, in-cluding two deputy superintend-ents of police, for allegedly re-ceiving bribe to compromise on investigation against companies accused of bank fraud,
and started a search operation Thursday morn-ing at its training academy in-Ghaziabad and 13 other locations, officials said. The agency did not give out much details about the case in which its own personnel are under scanner for allegedly taking huge amounts of bribe from the ac-cused companies in bank fraud cases being probed by them, they said.
The CBI officials booked by the agency are Deputy Superintendents of Police R K Rishi and R K Sangwan, Inspector Kapil Dhankad and Steno Samir Kumar Singh, they said. “Searches were conducted today at 14 loca-tions, including Delhi,
Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurgaon, Meerut and Kanpur, at the premises of the ac-cused,” CBI spokesperson R C Joshi said. The situation became embar-rassing for the agency as it had to search premises of Rishi who is posted in the CBI Academy where the central probe agency prepares its officers for future role.
In ad-dition, cadets from foreign coun-tries are also trained at the state-of-the-art academy in Ghaziabad. Besides the personnel, the CBI has booked several private per-sons, including advocates, under relevant sections of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act on the allegations of compro-mising on the investigation of cer-tain cases on “extraneous pecu-niary considerations”, he said.
