New Delhi, Aug 9 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Tuesday registered a case against eight Central Public Works Department (CPWD) officials and two private firms for irregularities in awarding tender for renovation of a pool complex for the Commonwealth Games 2010, an official said.
The CBI also conducted raids at 16 places in Delhi, Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh and Jaipur in Rajasthan, which the agency said yielded incriminating documents.
The two private firms are Ahluwalia Contracts (India) Limited and a joint venture between Consulting Engineering Service and German firm Schlaich Bergernann.
“The accused persons conspired with the private parties and artificially jacked up prices so as to justify the award of work to these firms,” said a CBI official.
“The accused helped facilitate award of tender of upgradation and renovation of Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Swimming Pool Complex to the said private firms at exorbitant rate of Rs.229 crore,” the official added.
The accused have been booked for criminal conspiracy and criminal misconduct under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
They have been identified as S.S. Mondal, the then CWG manager of CPWD, superintendent engineer Rajendra Kalla, executive engineers Manu Mittal and Pradeep Gupta, assistant engineers A.K. Arora, Manish Kumar Rawat and Som Dutt, and junior engineer Sanjeev Kumar.
