Mumbai: Mumbai Anti-Corruption Bureau of CBI has registered a record number of trap cases in the year 2009, far ahead of all other zones in the country, CBI officials on Tuesday said.

"We have recorded 48 trap cases last year. The Mumbai Anti-Corruption Bureau of the CBI has exceeded all the targets set for the year," Rishiraj Singh, Director (Western Region) told reporters here.

These include the arrests of Sarabjot Singh, son of Chairman of Schedule Castes Panel Buta Singh, Additional Commissioner of Income Tax Kesh Kamat, Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax Rajkumar Bhatia and RPF officials, he said.

"Cases were registered against officers of other departments like National Co-operative Consumers' Federation, which looks after the tribal welfare scheme, MTNL and FCI," Rishiraj said.

A target of 28 cases was set for Mumbai in 2009 but the bureau has registered 52 cases, he said.

The Pune unit of the bureau, which was opened in January last year, registered seven trap cases against Army officials there, Rishiraj said.
