THE CBI on Friday submitted an investigation report and its FIR against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh in an alleged corruption case before the special court in Mumbai.
The CBI, which filed the FIR last week, informed the special CBI court in the city about the case and submitted the report, which includes details of the probe conducted so far, including information on the raids and searches.
A CBI official said it was normal procedure to inform a court about the ongoing probe.
The CBI had filed the FIR after completing its preliminary inquiry into allegations of corruption made by former Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh. Singh had filed a petition before the Bombay High Court, following which the court had directed the CBI to conduct the inquiry.
The CBI has, so far, conducted searches in Mumbai and Nagpur, including at Deshmukh’s residence and recorded statements of various persons. The CBI has filed an FIR on charges of criminal conspiracy and sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.
Ambani case: NIA rejects bail plea of accused
The NIA has opposed the bail plea filed by Naresh Gaur, an accused in the Ambani terror scare case. The central agency has claimed that Gaur was involved in the conspiracy and procured SIM cards used in the offence. It added that the investigation is continuing and if released on bail, Gaur could tamper with evidence. In his bail plea filed through lawyer Aftab Diamondwala, Gaur had said that he had no knowledge about the conspiracy. An alleged bookie, Gaur was arrested last month by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad. He was later handed over to NIA when it took over the probe. (Express News Service)
