The CBI has arrested a man in connection with the alleged fraudulent sale of land in the capital meant for slum dwellers.

The arrested person, R S Sandhu, is the manager of the Delhi Assembly canteen run by alleged scam mastermind, Ashok Malhotra.

Sandhu was picked up from his residence late last night.

After his arrest and interrogation, the CBI on Friday conducted raids at 12 places in various parts of the capital and nearby satellite towns.

A fresh FIR naming certain MCD officials was also registered on Friday.

The case is the fallout of the multi-crore scam involving Ashok Malhotra, at present in CBI custody.

Malhotra had allegedly entered into a criminal conspiracy with DDA officials to fraudulently acquire and sell land earmarked for the resettlement of slum dwellers.
