Panaji: Goa DGP TN Mohan on Tuesday ruled out any fresh arrests in the Louis Berger bribery case being probed by Crime Branch, in the backdrop of a speculation that former chief minister Digambar Kamat and ex-minister Churchill Alemao could be taken into custody.

Ruling out any immediate arrest in connection with the case wherein Kamat and Alemao were separately questioned by Crime Branch, the DGP said, "Not presently. Depends on how evidence leads. At present, I don't think there will be much more arrests."

The top cop also said that a Letter Rogatory (LR) has been sent to the US government seeking details of the case, being prosecuted in a court in that country.

He said the LR had been sent (through court) to the US government seeking details of the case.

Crime Branch has separately arrested former director of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Anand Wachasunder and ex vice-president of Louis Berger Satyakam Mohanty in this regard.

Officials of the US-based firm had already admitted in court of doling out bribe to an Indian minister and officials to win consultancy for two water projects under Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in Goa and Guwahati.
