Arrested on bribery charges, CBI superintendent of police Vivek Dutt has claimed innocence before a Delhi court, alleging that his arrest was part of a conspiracy to keep him out of the Supreme Court-monitored Coalgate probe team.

“He (Dutt) is investigating an important case and somebody wants him not to be the part of the probe team... This is simply a device to divert the attention…that the investigation is vitiated,” his counsel told the special CBI court.

The counsel said nothing had been recovered from Dutt’s possession and his client was being targeted.

But the court remanded Dutt, CBI inspector Rajesh Chandra Karnatak, alleged middleman Rajesh Pachisia and businessman Dinesh Chand Gupta to three-day CBI custody.
