The CBI has admitted that a file pertaining to investigations into the allegations of siphoning of secret funds of Research and Analysis Wing by one its former chiefs during his tenure has gone missing.

The agency, replying to an RTI query filed by another former RAW official, has said that the file is not 'traceable' prompting him to move a special CBI court here which has directed the agency to give a 'status report' on the
investigations.

Former RAW official RK Yadav has filed an RTI application seeking details of action taken on his complaint
to CBI nine years ago against former chief of the snooping agency A K Verma in which he had alleged large-scale
corruption by him and amassing of properties disproportionate to known sources of income.

The CBI, in its RTI reply, said the "matter regarding disproportionate assets allegedly acquired by A K Verma was
not considered worthwhile to enquire since Verma had retired way back in 1990. However, the file is not traceable now."

Yadav pleaded before the special court here that the CBI be directed to provide details of the case and investigations carried by it on the allegations levelled by him against the top official of India's external intelligence agency.
