Another ministry papers theft case handed over to Crime Branch

New Delhi: In the wake of corporate espionage scandal, a similar 2013 case in which some confidential documents were stolen from the Corporate Affairs Ministry was on Tuesday handed over to the Crime Branch.

The Crime Branch of Delhi Police is investigating the current case in which it has registered two FIRs and arrested 14 people so far.

The incident took place on November 15, 2013 where confidential documents in connection to an alleged financial fraud case related to Reebok India Limited were stolen from the office of Director (Inspection and Investigation), Corporate Affairs Ministry by his peon Ravinder Kumar.

Kumar had told interrogators that he had supplied the stolen documents to one Imran, who he claimed, worked for Reebok India.

While Kumar was released on bail, Imran could never be arrested due to lack of evidence.

"Given the similarities in the 2013 case and the current case, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi handed over the? 2013 case to the Crime Branch. The case was earlier probed by a team of Parliament Street police station," said a senior police official.

Special CP (Crime) Taj Hassan will monitor the case, he said.
