Allahabad HC orders CBI probe in Yadav Singh's graft case

Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday ordered a CBI probe into alleged corruption by suspended Noida Authority chief engineer Yadav Singh on a PIL filed by social activist Nutan Thakur.

A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice SN Shukla gave the order after hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by social worker Nutan Thakur in December 2014.

Notably, the case is being probed by the income tax department, Enforcement Directorate, Special Investigation Team (SIT) and other enforcement agencies. According to their investigation it was estimated that Singh has illegally gathered assets of over more than Rs.2000 Crores by his corrupts practices in the Nodia and Greater Noida authorities in the past decade.

"The agencies probing the case are specialists in their work but it was quite possible that he could have escaped after paying a penalty. That is why I approached the HC for a CBI probe", the petitioner said.

Nutan Thakur had filed a supplementary affidavit giving facts, including details of various alleged false companies floated by Yadav Singh for siphoning off illegal money. Giving details of Income Tax raids on Yadav's establishments in Delhi, Ghaziabad and Noida on November 27-28, 2014, the petitioner had sought a CBI probe into his financial anomalies case.

"The state government argued against and protested a CBI probe by maintaining that a judicial committee is probing the case and the result is awaited. However, the court observed that the committee has its own limitations and ordered a CBI probe", Ashok Pandey, the petitioner's counsel said.
