CWG overlays scam: Court remands pvt firm head to 14-day judicial custody

"The accused is remanded to jail till February four," Special CBI Judge O P Saini said.
Bina Nanu, director of event management company GL Events-Meroform, who was arrested on January 18, was interrogated by the CBI in its custody for the last four days.

The CBI had on January 12 searched office and residence of Nanu and many others after it registered a case in connection with the over Rs 600 crore alleged overlays scam.

Nanu's wife Roopana is also one of his associates in the business, the probe agency said.
The FIR, the fourth in connection with the CWG, was registered against OC Director General V K Verma.

CBI had alleged that Verma and others entered into a "criminal conspiracy" with managing directors and directors of private companies in the award of contracts for overlays for different venues of CWG-2010 at "exorbitant rates".

The overlays contracts are also under the scanner of the Income Tax Department and the Enforcement Directorate.

Overlays works included supply of tents, marquees, prefabricated units, portable toilets, containers, security fences, furniture, public display LED boards, floor finishes, material handling equipment, gensets, cabling, UPS, lighting, air-conditioners, civil construction, athletic exercise equipment and grandstands, the agency said.

The CBI had earlier registered three FIRs for alleged corruption in projects and events in the run-up to the sporting extravaganza. Two of these cases were in connection with alleged irregularities in the Queen's Baton Relay.
