Verma, wife get re-arrested in forgery case

 In a dramatic turnaround of events, businessman Abhishek Verma and his wife were arrested today afresh by the CBI in a forgery case lodged on Sports Minister Ajay Maken’s complaint, minutes after they were granted bail by a Delhi court in a corruption case. 

 The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sleuths affected arrest of Verma and his Romanian wife Anca Maria Neacsu in the court of Special CBI Judge Sanjeev Jain itself, soon after the couple were granted bail in the corruption case involving their bid to influence unknown officials to stall a government’s move to blacklist a Swiss arms firm.  With the CBI arresting the couple in a forgery case, the court remanded him back in judicial custody for a day. The special court granted bail to the couple after the agency failed to file chargesheet in stipulated 60 days after their arrest in the corruption case. They were arrested on June 8 for allegedly receiving money from a Swiss arms firm to stall its blacklisting proceedings by the government. While remanding the couple  back in judicial custody, the judge said, “Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the case, both the accused are remanded to judicial custody till tomorrow.”  Earlier during the proceeding, the court granted bail to Verma and his wife on a personal bond of Rs 10 lakh each and two sureties of the same amount each.
