The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a disproportionate assets case against Murari Lal Tayal, a 1976 batch retired IAS officer who held the key post of principal secretary to former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
CBI booked Tayal on Monday evening along with members of the family including wife Savita Tayal, son Kartik Tayal and daughter Malvika Tayal and a firm — Kappac Pharma Limited.
According to the FIR, Tayal was in possession of disproportionate assets worth Rs 10 crore.
