Railway bribery case: 'CBI is habituated to implicating opposition and saving Govt.', alleges BJP

New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): With the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) not naming Pawan Kumar Bansal in its chargesheet in connection with the railway bribery case, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday took on the apex investigating agency, saying it is now habituated to implicating the opposition and saving the government.

"The chargesheet has proved that the CBI can't probe cases, in which the government is involved, impartially.The CBI is habituated to implicating the opposition and saving the government," said BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain.

Bansal, who was forced to resign as Railways Minister in May over a corruption scandal in which his nephew allegedly played a starring role, is not among the 10 people accused of the scam in a chargesheet filed by the CBI.

Bansal was interrogated about the scandal by the CBI last month, which centred on his nephew, Vijay Singla, collecting 90 lakhs in cash, which the CBI says was a bribe from a member of the Railways Board, who hoped for a promotion.

He had to quit the Union Cabinet after it came to light that his nephew had allegedly accepted a bribe of Rs. 90 lakh from Mahesh Kumar for being appointed to the post of member electrical. (ANI)
