Hours after the CBI lodged two cases against Yadav Singh, the former engineer-in-chief of Noida, and his family members for enriching themselves illegally, the Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday evening registered a fresh criminal case against him. A special investigation cell (SIC) will probe the case. Meerut range DIG Ramit Sharma will supervise the probe.

Principal secretary (home) Debashish Panda said the SIC was set up on the recommendation of a one-member judicial commission of Justice (retd.) Amarnath Verma, who was probing the charges against Singh. While the Meerut range DIG will supervise the probe, superintendent of police in the human rights wing of Uttar Pradesh Police, Ram Kishore, will head the SIC.

The Verma commission was formed after the Income-Tax department conducted raids in November last year at different places linked to Singh, who was then holding the charge of chief engineer at the New Okhla Industrial Development Authority, Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority and Yamuna Expressways Authority.

On January 13, 2012, Noida police had registered an FIR against Singh, Ramendra, the then project engineer, and two construction companies — Tirupati Construction Pvt Ltd and JSP Constructions. Singh was suspended after the case was registered.
