The CBI on Thursday busted an illegal human trafficking racket allegedly run by a Delhi-based politician, who contested the 2008 Assembly elections on Samajwadi party ticket here, in collusion with some government officials, including a Home Ministry staff.

The agency carried out searches at nearly 38 residential and official premises of recruiting agent Waseem Ahmed Gazi, officials, and other people allegedly involved in the racket.

During the search operation, spread across Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Hyderabad, the sleuths recovered incriminating documents.

The CBI has registered three cases against Gazi, three recruitment firms, officers of Protectorate of Emigrants VB Singh, Nadeem Ahmed, Arup Agrawal and YP Ahuja.
