Completed prelim enquiry into Rs 1000-crore BSNL case: CBI to HC


CBI has told the Delhi High Court that it has completed its preliminary enquiry into allegations against Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd, BSNL.

Some of its officials allegedly caused a loss of about 1,000 crore rupees to the exchequer by releasing unauthorised payment to a subsidiary of a Chinese firm by fabricating documents.

The probe agency told a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar that the investigating officer was yet to submit the findings to the superiors and sought more time to file a report regarding its enquiry.

The court gave six weeks to the CBI to file a status report and listed the matter for further hearing on 22nd of October.

The court was hearing a plea by NGO Telecom Watchdog, which has claimed that it was a huge case of corruption involving about 1,000 crore rupees.
