They have been charged under IPC sections related to criminal conspiracy and Prevention of Corruption Act.

The agency alleged former CMD Arvind Jadhav had constituted an “illegal” promotion panel to recommend suitable candidates for promotions to the post of General Manager (Operations) during 2009-10.
