Forensic report confirms former Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar’s voice in the audio tape. Now CBI claimed that they have strong case against Rajendra. BJP questions Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s silence over his arrest.
In the tapes recovered from his residence during a raid in December last year, Rajendra was heard passing on instructions to the co-accused in a corruption case.
The CFSL, after examining the audio clips, confirmed that the voice in the tape was of Kumar.
In these audio files, Kumar seems to be instructing his associates about how to influence and manipulate contracts in favour of a private company Endeavour Systems Private Limited.
The CBI has alleged that the bribes received in lieu of contracts awarded during the tenure of suspended IAS officer Rajendra Kumar, who has been arrested on allegations of corruption, were diverted to various companies and entities.
According to the agency, bribes to the extent of Rs. 3.3 crore were received in the accounts of Mr. Kumar’s “front company” Endeavour Systems Pvt. Ltd. by way of camouflaged agreements against the contracts. Works worth Rs. 33 crore were awarded to other companies in Delhi Transco Ltd. and the Trade and Taxes Department of the Delhi government. “The bribes have been further diverted to other companies or entities in the fields of real estate, education or publication,” The Hindu quotes a CBI official as saying
