CBI on Friday registered an FIR against JD(U)’s Rajya Sabha member Anil Kumar Sahani for alleged submission of false travel claims.

Sahani allegedly made false claims to the tune of around `9.5 lakh for seven business-class return air tickets, worth around `1.34 lakh each, from Port Blair to Delhi in December 2012, according to a CBI source.

“He used fake air tickets and boarding passes for himself and six of his associates,” the source said. Along with Sahani, a customer service agent, Rubaina Akhtar, working with the national carrier and a Lajpat Nagar-based travel operator, Air Cruise Travels Private Limited, were named in the FIR.

“The authorised code of the customer service agent was used. We are probing her role and if this was done on other occasions too,” said the source.

The FIR was lodged as part of the CBI’s probe into alleged irregularities related to Leave Travel Concession (LTC) scam. The irregularities being probed pertain to fraudulent LTC claims for travelling on the state-run Air India.
