Mumbai: Sarobjit Singh, son of National
Commission of SC/ST Chairman Buta Singh, was today sent to CBI
custody till August 5 along with three other persons arrested
in a case of alleged bribery.

Sarobjit Singh, son of National
Commission of SC/ST Chairman Buta Singh, was today sent to CBI
custody till August 5 along with three other persons arrested
in a case of alleged bribery.

They were produced before Special CBI Judge S P
Hayatnagarkar who sent them to six-day CBI custody.

CBI alleged, Sarobjit and the others demanded the
bribe to "influence" Buta Singh for settling the case
registered against Patil.

"On July 16, Patil received a call from Begi informing
him that Buta Singh wanted to meet him and had called him to
Delhi," CBI said in their remand application.

When Patil reached Delhi, Begi took him to the house
of Buta Singh.

"Patil, Sarobjit and Begi had a meeting in the
house in the presence of another person," CBI special counsel
Ejaz Khan told the court. Khan, however, declined to divulge
the identity of the fourth person present in the meeting.

After returning from Delhi, Patil approached the Anti-
Corruption Bureau of CBI and lodged a complaint following
which the agency laid a trap.
