New Delhi: After two years of investigation, the CBI has filed a chargesheet against a former Major General and his wife for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to their known sources of income.

The chargesheet named former Major General Anand Kumar Kapoor and his wife Mridula before Special CBI Judge in Patiala House Courts for allegedly possessing disproportionate assets to the tune of around Rs 3.37 crore.

Gen Kapoor was with the Army Ordnance Corps and posted with South Western Command at Jaipur when the CBI had conducted raids at his residence and 11 other places in Delhi, Gurgaon, Shimla, Jaipur and Mumbai on October 10, 2007.

The CBI said in a statement that during the probe it was found that the Major General, while functioning as a public servant in different capacities during the period from November 14, 1971 to October 10, 2007 had acquired assets, which were allegedly disproportionate to his known sources of income.

The Army officer acquired assets either in his own name or in the name of Hindu Undivided Family (HUF), showing himself as 'Karta', or in the name of his wife even though she did not have any ostensible source of income or in the name of his two children, the CBI statement said.

Being one of the rare cases, the agency has calculated the assets over a check period stretching over 35 years.
