Orissa HC ex-Judge, five others in CBI net in corruption case

Postado Setembro 22, 2017

Addressing a press meet yesterday, Commissionerate Police Commissioner YB Khurania said, "A CBI team led by inspector P K Mishra visited the residence of the acting High Court judge CR Dash on the midnight of September 19".

The agency laid a trap and recovered Rs 1 crore from Agrawala in Delhi which he had allegedly received from a hawala operator, Ram Dev Saraswat, the CBI sources said.

Investigators told Mail Today during the searches they have found several documents, which indicate that Quddusi was involved in other corporate deals as well, but they are yet to find if he used his influence in settling court matters and whether other judicial members were involved in the case.

The officials of the security agency immediately left the spot after identifying their mistake, as quoted by the CBI.

Sending the accused to CBI custody, special judge Jain said: "It is an embarrassing situation, but if they (CBI) are not given custody, the truth will never come out".

The case against the CBI officials comes a day after the central agency arrested BJD MLA Prabhat Biswal for his alleged involvement in the Seashore chit fund scam.

From Kumaon in Uttarakhand, Pandey had joined the Congress and later networked with Samajwadi Party politicians, sources in CBI said, adding that she had built a wide network and accumulated considerable wealth.

Interestingly, one of the accused, Bhawana Pandey, lives in the same building in south Delhi's posh Greater Kailash area where retired judge Quddusi was staying.

The next hearing of the case has been posted to October 16. The issue had been challenged in the Supreme Court.

It also authorised the Medical Council of India to encash the college's bank guarantee of Rs 2 crore, it said.

The High Court Bar Association has chose to continue with its stir. "August 21, 2017", the CBI FIR stated.

"Biswanath Agrawala claimed very close contacts with senior relevant public functionaries and assured that he would get the matter favourably settled". "He demanded huge gratification for inducing public servants by corrupt and illegal means", it alleged.
