CBI has filed FIR against its own Special Director Rakesh Asthana accusing him of taking a bribe of Rs 2 crore. Rakesh Asthana replied that this case is a conspiracy because he has given the list of Director Alok Verma’s corruption list to the Prime Minister’s Office and the Chief Vigilance Commissioner. The Prime Minister’s Office is also angry with this fight, CBI Director Alok Verma met PM Narendra Modi and gave his clarification.
The accused number one in the FIR is Rakesh Asthana, who is the CBI’s No. 2 officer. In connection with the famous meat businessman Moin Qureshi, a man named Satish Sana has been accused of taking a bribe of Rs two crores. The CBI also said in its FIR that the bribery scandal has been linked from Delhi to Dubai.
The Special Director of CBI also reversed on FIR and said that the case against him has been lodged under the conspiracy because he himself has been booked under the charge of Alok Verma’s corruption allegations in the Prime Minister’s Office and central observer. It was also alleged that the bribe of Rs two crore rupees was taken by the CBI director.
