Two days after a UT vigilance team nabbed an agent and class-4 employee of the Registering and Licensing Authority (RLA) for depositing files at the branch, investigations are on to check the functioning of agents.

The vigilance on Monday questioned three employees of the RLA and scanned the call records of accused Rakesh, a sweeper at the RLA, and Sonu, an agent. Sonu had allegedly named three RLA employees for their involvement.

Sources in the vigilance department said at present, the call details of the sweeper’s number were being checked. The closed-circuit television camera (CCTV) footage of the area was also being scrutinised.

The sources added that the agent and the sweeper were in touch with each other from past six months and had earlier also deposited several files.

The police were trying to identify other people who were part of the racket.

On August 8, the RLA busted a racket of agents, who along with a Class-4 employee of the RLA’s Sector 17 branch, used to get files deposited at the branch after charging money from the applicants.
A case was also registered against the sweeper.

A complainant had approached the RLA with the video recording of the agent and the sweeper identified as Rakesh. The recording showed Rakesh getting the file deposited out-of-turn.
