CBI searched the Indore residence of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) superintendent, Ujjain, Mukesh Khatri in connection with a demand for bribe of Rs 25 lakh for not booking a person under NDPS Act.
The CBI also searched the office of NCB, Kota superintendent, Dharam Singh Meena.
The CBI in a release issued here on Monday said that they have seized 13 documents related to bank expenditure, one locker key and one mobile phone from Khatri’s residence.
The CBI seized one corporate diary, a mobile phone owned by Sudhir Sharma and other incriminating documents from Meena’s Kota office. The search at Meena office is still going on.
A case had been registered on October 24 by CBI and anti corruption bureau (ACB) Bhopal under various sections of the IPC on the basis of a written complaint against Khatri, Meena and other unknown persons.
The complainant alleged that Meena had demanded a bribe of Rs 25 lakh through Khatri for not implicating him in the case of Sudheer Gupta (complainant’s friend), who was booked by Meena in NDPS Act Case at Kota, as the complainant is also dealing in business of real estate and ayurvedic products.
The CBI said that after verification of complaint, it was found that Khatri had demanded a bribe of Rs 25 lakh from the complainant but after negotiation, it was reduced to Rs 16 lakh.
The amount was to be paid to Mukesh Khatri on October 24. However, at the meeting Khatri became suspicious and did not accept the bribe but took two mobile phones from the complainant.
