Tatra case: CBI examines 3 senior BEML officials

 Three senior officials of the finance and vigilance wings of BEML were examined by the CBI today regarding the case of alleged irregularities in the Tatra truck supply deal to the Army.

The three senior officials including the Finance head of the BEML were asked about different aspects by CBI officials to understand the nuances of the deal, CBI sources said.

They were also asked about prima facie discrepancies which have appeared from the scrutiny of documents and questioning of Vectra chairman Ravinder Rishi by the CBI last week, they said.

The sources refused to reveal the names of the officials as they are neither accused nor concerned with the alleged irregularities, they said. The CBI sources said it was not a questioning but an examination to clarify the finer points of the truck supply deal with Tatra Sipox UK and subsequent changes made in it over the period.

The sleuths asked from the officials the reasons for signing of contract with Tatra Sipox UK which was not the original manufacturer in 1997 and its renewal in 2003.
They also asked the rules which could have been violated in doing so and whether such an action was in accordance with the procurement rules.

They were also asked about payments modes adopted for Tatra Sipox UK and where the payments were actually going, the sources said. The officials were also asked about the changing of currency from dollar to Euro in making payments to Tatra.
