The CBI, after being pulled up by the Bombay High Court on several occasions for its slow probe, has finally filed a charge-sheet against 12 RPF personnel in the fake bail bond scam at Kurla station
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday informed the Bombay High Court that it has filed a charge-sheet against 12 personnel from the Railway Protection Force (RPF) in the fake bail bond scam.
A division bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and KK Tated was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by social activist Samir Zaveri alleging that certain RPF personnel were releasing persons booked for trespassing and crossing railway tracks on fake cash bail bonds.
In August 2011, the high court transferred investigation in the case to CBI following allegations of shoddy probe by the Government Railway Police (GRP).
The CBI told the HC that it has evidence against 27 persons and had applied for sanction to prosecute the remaining 15. After obtaining the sanction, the CBI said it would file a supplementary charge-sheet against these 15 persons.
Last month, additional solicitor general Kevic Setalvad, appearing for the CBI, told the court that the investigating agency has sufficient evidence against nine officials who are the main accused and out of the nine, it needed sanction for prosecution from the government for five officers.
In his PIL, Zaveri had alleged that a head constable acted as a magistrate and granted bail to the alleged offenders and the money collected was misappropriated by the RPF personnel themselves.
