Will comment on railway bribery case after investigation is complete: Sharad Yadav

New Delhi, July 3 (ANI): Asserting that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) works under government pressure, Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav on Wednesday said that his party would make any comment on the railway bribery case once the probe is over.

" CBI always acts under pressure and this is a give away also something for everyone to see. He is not running away anywhere, so with time things will come to the fore," he said, when asked that the CBI has not named former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal in its chargesheet.

The CBI yesterday filed its chargesheet in the alleged Rs 10 crore cash-for-post railway bribery scandal before a special court in New Delhi.

The agency filed its charge sheet before the special CBI Judge Swarna Kanta Sharma naming 10 accused which include Vijay Singla, Mahesh Kumar, middlemen Sandeep Goyal, Samir Sandhir, Sushil Daga, Ajay Garg, Rahul Yadav, businessman Manjunath and his two aides-PV Murali and Venugopal.

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 centered 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)
