New Delhi, Oct 23: The CBI Deputy Superintendent of Police, Devender Kumar, who was arrested in connection with bribery allegations involving its Special Director Rakesh Asthana, has approached the Delhi High Court on Tuesday.
Hearing in the matter will place at 2 pm.
The probe agency held Kumar in the Moin Qureshi case over the allegation of falsification of records on Monday.
According to the Central Bureau of Investigation, Kumar fabricated the statement of Sathish Sana, a witness in the Qureshi case, showing he recorded the statement on September 26 in Delhi. However, an investigation has revealed that Sana was not in Delhi. He was in Hyderabad on that day and joined the investigation only on October 1.
Kumar’s arrest comes a day after the CBI lodged an FIR against Asthana, Kumar and two others under sections pertaining to Prevention of Corruption Act.
The probe agency has alleged that bribes were taken at least five times in December 2017 and October this year to settle a case of meat exporter Moin Qureshi.
