Vivek Dutt,part of the CBI team probing the coal allocation scandal,had indulged in “undesirable activities” to settle a cheating case in lieu of “illegal gratification”,the CBI has said in its FIR.

Dutt,CBI inspector Rajesh Chander Karnatak,middleman Rajesh Pachisia and businessman Dinesh Chand Gupta were arrested by the CBI Friday and remanded in CBI custody till May 21 by a Delhi court on Saturday.

In its FIR,the CBI Dutt,a Superintendent of Police,and Karnatak were indulging in “undesirable activities” in connivance with Pachisia,who runs a business of computer software,and others. Pachisia,it said,had visited Dutt’s office several times without making entry in visitors’ register and also impersonated himself as Vijay from Malviya Nagar to get entry to the office. Dutt had told Pachisia to introduce himself as Vijay when talking to him on phone as his phone might be on surveillance,it added.

The FIR said that Pachisia’s activities were “very much suspicious” and he was also in touch with businessman Dinesh Chand Gupta against whom a cheating case was registered on April 5. Dutt has claimed innocence and alleged that a conspiracy has been hatched to keep him out of the SC-monitored team investigating the coal scandal.
