CBI likely to initiate inquiry in RPF appointments

CBI is likely to register a preliminary inquiry into the appointment of senior officers in the Railway Protection Force as it suspects large scale corruption in these postings.



New Delhi: CBI is likely to register a preliminary inquiry into the appointment of senior officers in the Railway Protection Force as it suspects large scale corruption in these postings.

Sources said files related to appointments of senior officers in Railway Protection Force have been sought by CBI in this connection.

Under the CBI scanner is the posting of a Director General Of RPF who had reportedly superseded 25 officers to become the head of the force during Mamata Banerjee`s tenure in May, 2011.

However, the agency sources said they are not targetting any individual in their probe and they would be looking into all aspects of appointments and promotions in the RPF while probing alleged corruption.

The sources said the agency has already examined some officials of the Railway Ministry before registration of the case but a formal recording of their statements would take place after the cases have been registered.
The bribery scandal involving former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal`s nephew Vijay Singla and Railway Board member (staff) Maghesh Kumar has opened a can of worms and many complaints of alleged corruption in various departments are coming to CBI, they said.
The sources said agency would take action only after it finds some concrete material to initiate an inquiry into allegations of corruption.
