Taking its probe further in the Railway bribery scam, CBI has recorded the statement of chairman Railway Board Vinay Mittal in connection with the case involving former railway minister Pawan Bansal's nephew Vijay Singla.
CBI sources said Mittal was questioned in connection with details of promotions and postings of Board members on Thursday evening for at least three hours starting 5pm.
The sources said that Mittal was not questioned as accused. The case relates to alleged bribe payment to Singla by Board member Mahesh Kumar for getting posting of choice.
Bansal had to resign as union railway minister early May after his nephew and a few other persons were arrested by CBI in a case involving alleged payment of the bribe.
