New Delhi, Sep 6, 2012 (IANS)

A special court here Thursday sent to 14 days judicial custody a CBI data entry operator and seven others for allegedly hacking the bank account of the probe agency's officials and misusing Rs.1.5 crore.

Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Talwant Singh sent the probe agency's data entry operator, Prashant Kumar Jha, and his seven associates to judicial custody till Sep 20.

The accused include Jha, Pawan Mishra, Amit Ranjan Mishra, Amol Kumar Ray, Nand Lal Ram, Jolen Khess, Mahender Khukhri and Jitender Verma.

The court transferred the case to chief metropolitan magistrate and directed the probe agency to present them there on the next date of hearing.

Jha along with Pawan Mishra, Amit Ranjan Mishra and Amol Kumar Ray were presented in the court after the expiry of their two-day CBI custody.

According to the CBI, after hacking the officials' bank account Jha used some forged cheques issued in their names and encashed them.

The CBI booked the accused under charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and  corruption.

The case was registered on a complaint by the pay and accounts office, which works under the finance ministry and manages the accounts of the CBI.

The complainant alleged the fraud was detected in the accounts of the CBI related to fiscal 2011-12 and 2012-13.
