According to sources, the FIRs have been registered against G S Chawla, the owner of Chawla petrol pump in Mohali and his son. The other FIR was registered against Deepa Duggal.
The sources said a CBI team seized some documents from the police headquarters on Tuesday. The agency may also question some higher police officers in the case as their role also came under scanner.
The CBI will also investigate that why the police did not keep any case diary records and how they arrested the relatives of GS Chawla without any arrest warrants.
G S Chawla’s daughter Guneet Kaur then approached the CBI in August this year that a DSP of EOW RC Meena, sub-inspector Surinder Kumar and two businessmen, Sanjay Dahuja and Aman Grover, were arrested by the CBI while allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 40 lakh.
