CBI issues non-bailable warrant against senior UP IAS officer
Lucknow : A CBI special court has issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against senior Uttar Pradesh IAS officer Rajeev Kumar over a plot allotment scam, an official said on Thursday.
 
Special Central Bureau of Investigation Judge G. Sridevi issued the warrant against Kumar for his role in the scam in Noida. 
 
He was sentenced to three years on November 20, 2012.
 
Kumar, who was appointed secretary in the state, was indicted by special CBI judge S. Lal in 2012, along with former chief secretary Neera Yadav. 
 
He had approached the Allahabad High Court against the order.
 
The court, however, dismissed his petition for relief after which the state government was forced to remove him from his post. 
 
Yadav surrendered in the Ghaziabad court on March 14. 
 
She is being held in the Dasna jail in Ghaziabad district.
