New Delhi: Delhi police on Saturday opposed the bail
plea of suspended IAS officer Ravi Inder Singh, accused of
passing official information to unauthorised persons, saying
that the matter was still at the initial stage of
investigation.

"The officer has been sent to judicial custody after being
in custodial interrogation for 6 days. The matter is still
at early stage of investigation," Public Prosecutor Rajeev
Mohan told Special Judge Rakesh Siddharth.

The officer, then working as a Director Internal Security
in Ministry of Home Affairs, was arrested along with Vineet
Kumar, CMD of Kolkata-based Temptation Food Pvt Ltd, who was
allegedly acting as a middleman for him, by Delhi police`s
Special Cell on November 23.

The prosecutor supplied a written reply to the application
to Singh`s counsel, who had filed it on November 30, on the
court`s direction.

The court adjourned the matter for December 13 after
Singh`s counsel sought time for arguments.

Singh is alleged to have taken illegal gratification from
co-accused Kumar in terms of his lodging expenses at a guest
house here since his deputation to New Delhi from Kolkata in
January this year. He also allegedly used a car provided by
Kumar.

Kumar was also accused of acting at the behest of a
US-based telecom company to procure information relating to
some files.

A case was registered under various provisions of the
Prevention of Corruption Act and the Indian Penal Code dealing
with criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence against
the duo.
