The agency also claimed that sharing any information about the misuse of public money for necessary action by the concerned department is a normal practice and duty of the CBI. The agency had denied any charge of vendetta.
 
But Jha claims that when Ranjit Sinha was serving as director general of the RPF, he had leveled serious charges of corruption against the officer.
 
According to Jha, he had also made written complaint against Sinha to the minister of railways on May 16, 2011. Besides, he made two more complaints against Sinha on June 20, 2011 and on August 3, 2012 against Sinha.
 
Sinha served as the DG of the RPF between November 12, 2008 and May 19, 2011.
 
In his legal notice, Jha said that there was no misuse of accommodations as they were allotted to the association by the railway ministry. He has given details of all accommodations allotted to the RPF association.
