The CBI investigating the bribery case registered against Sarobjit Singh, son of Buta Singh, has sought the help of Enforcement Directorate as one of the accused in the case is allegedly a hawala operator who was arrested earlier in another case.

"Dhuksingh Chauhan was arrested under the Conservation of Foreign Exchange and Prevention of Smuggling Activities (COFEPOSA) Act and spent over a year in jail between 1995 to 2000," CBI Joint Director Rishiraj Singh told PTI.

He said, "we have sought help from ED to throw more light on this as Chauhan is an old hawala operator and further probe from our side is on."

Singh said a team of CBI is in Bangalore searching for the third hawala operator Shamalal Chaudhari who was to receive the money from Chauhan and transfer it to Delhi to Sweety Singh.
