New Delhi, Oct 22: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) booking its own Special Director in an alleged bribery case.

The PM’s blue-eyed boy, Gujarat cadre officer, of Godra SIT fame, infiltrated as No. 2 into the CBI, has now been caught taking bribes. Under this PM, the CBI is a weapon of political vendetta. An institution in terminal decline that’s at war with itself,” the Congress President tweeted along with a news report.

According to the reports, an FIR has been lodged against Asthana, number 2 in CBI, for allegedly seeking and taking a bribe from a businessman related to controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi.

The officer was heading the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was probing Qureshi’s case.

Apart from Asthana, the probe agency has also registered a case against others, including a Deputy Superintendent of Police in its SIT, under sections pertaining to Prevention of Corruption Act.
