CBI has registered a case of disproportionate assets against former President of Dental Council of India Anil Kohli and said it has recovered Rs one crore in cash during searches carried out at six places in this connection.
According to CBI spokesperson, a case against Kohli was registered for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income during the period April one, 2005 to March 31, 2009.
During the searches, it was found that Kohli has made huge investments in properties which include a palatial house at Gulmohar Park; four shops at Lajpat Nagar and a farmhouse at Chawla (near Najafgarh) all in New Delhi, the spokesperson said.
CBI claimed to have recovered Rs one crore in cash during the searches at his places besides documents showing that he had purchased a house in Lajpat Nagar worth Rs 82 lakh.
Kohli was not immediately available for comment.
The CBI was probing Kohli's role as DCI President for allegedly receiving favours from dental colleges for verification and cancellation of certain institutes. He had resigned from the DCI in 2010.
Earlier, the Health Ministry had constituted a two-member committee to probe the charges against him.
