The Punjab and Haryana high court on Wednesday constituted a special investigating team (SIT) to look into the allegations of “forgery, money laundering and misappropriation of funds” against former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer GS Pirzada, businessman Raman Uppal and others.

The probe team will comprise two officers each from Serious Fraud Investigation Office of the ministry of corporate affairs, Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax department and Central Bureau of Investigation.

The orders came on two petitions, one filed by accused Madan Singh, who had sought the quashing of an FIR against him registered in Chandigarh in 2012 and another filed by accused Uppal who had sought the transfer of investigations pertaining to a case registered against him in Mohali in 2014.

Uppal, who claimed to be a promoter of a firm, International Customers Related Management Services Private Limited (ICRMS), had alleged that some directors of the company bought properties in their own names and transferred its shares and misused funds of the company.
