CWG Scam: Former officials remanded to 3-day CBI custody

While Darbari and Mahendroo were already in CBI custody since they were arrested on November 15, Jayachandran was arrested yesterday by the investigating agency.
The agency produced Darbari, former OC Joint Director General Darbari, Mahendroo, former OC Deputy Director General and Jayachandran, former Joint Director General (Finance) before Special CBI Judge A S Yadav.

While, pleading for further remand of seven days for Darbari and Mahendroo, the agency submitted that they are not cooperating with the investigation and they are not forthcoming in their replies to the queries posed by it.

The court, however, granted only three more days remand to CBI along with Jayachandran.
The former OC official had been arrested in connection with the investigation in the two cases registered by CBI earlier this week.

CBI has filed two separate cases involving UK-based A M Films and the former officials of CWG Organising Committee on charges of forgery and cheating in organising QBR.
The first case names London-based AM Car and Van Services and its owner besides Darbari, Mahendroo, and Raj Singh, a Director-level officer in the OC.

They have been slapped with charges under Sections 468 (forgery of court records and public documents), 471 (using forged documents as genuine), 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC and Prevention of Corruption Act.

Jayachandran has also been questioned by Enforcement Directorate officials for over six hours as part of its probe into alleged financial irregularities in projects relating to the mega sporting event.
