delhi Updated: Feb 25, 2012 00:08 IST

A Delhi court on Friday decided to frame charges against seven persons, including four MCD officials and a firm for their alleged roles in the CWG street lightning scam, on February 27.

Special CBI judge Pradeep Chaddah said a prima facie case exists against the accused persons and "let the charges be framed accordingly".

The accused persons are MCD superintendent engineer DK Sugan, executive engineer OP Mahala, accountant Raju V and civic body's tender clerk Gurcharan Singh, besides JP Singh and TP Singh of private firm Sweska Powertech Engineers Pvt Ltd, who were allegedly illegally favoured in the award of street lighting contract. Another accused Mehul Karnik, an employee of Philips India Pvt Ltd, has, however, been discharged.

The CBI has alleged that in view of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the MCD had decided to upgrade street lightening.
