EPIL CMD, six others arrested in bribery case
New Delhi: The CBI on Monday arrested the Chief Managing Director (CMD) of Engineers Project India Ltd (EPIL) and six other employees of the public sector undertaking in a Rs 10-lakh bribery case, an official said.
EPIL CMD SPS Bakshi, as well as two Executive Directors Harcharan Pal and Kapil Tara were arrested from their offices in Scope Complex in south Delhi's Lodhi Road area along with other staff members.
They were booked for criminal conspiracy under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act.
"The EPIL officials were alleged of demanding Rs 10 lakh from a Raipur-based private firm for favouring it in the award of a contract for construction of Mega Urban Educational Complex at Pallur Hills in Odisha's Berhampur area," Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Spokesperson R.K. Gaur said.
The CBI official also said that the EPIL CMD further allegedly conspired with one of his staff members to collect the bribe amount as a part payment of the total agreed amount of gratification from one hawala operator based in Delhi's Chandni Chowk.
"The staffer was intercepted by CBI while allegedly receiving the bribe. Searches were conducted today (Monday) at eight locations in Delhi, Mumbai and Raipur," the official said.
