The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday arrested former Enforcement Directorate (ED) JP Singh, Assistant Director Sanjay Agarwal and two other officials in a case of corruption. The CBI has registered a case against a Joint Director (an IRS officer) posted at the office of ED in Ahmedabad, and other unknown public servants and private persons on a complaint from the Ministry of Finance.
It has been alleged that certain officers of ED, while investigating the cases of money laundering in betting and other such activities, have allegedly demanded and accepted huge illegal gratification from the accused and suspect persons in the said cases.
Huge bribe amount was allegedly taken by these officers as quid pro quo for various acts of omission and commission. Earlier, the investigation agency also arrested IAS officer from Chhattisgarh B L Agarwal and two others, who are facing corruption charges.
