New Delhi: A special CBI court here has directed the agency to inquire into allegations of disproportionate assets amassed by a former Secretary of the country's elite snooping agency Research and Analysis Wing.

An earlier order on February 18, 2013 by Tis Hazari Special court asking CBI to probe the assets of A K Verma, the then Chief RAW, was challenged by CBI in the Delhi High Court and was quashed.

 

"Thereafter, the complainant (former RAW employee R K Yadav) had prayed for issuing summons to the accused persons, for facing the trial for the offences punishable under Section 13 (1) (e) read with Section 13(2) of the P.C. Act, as well as for the offence under Section 109 IPC," Special Judge Brijesh Kumar Garg said in his order.

He said Yadav had examined a total of 13 witnesses in support of his contentions, in pursuance to the orders passed by the court, September 07. 2010.

"These witnesses have brought on record, the various documents pertaining to the various movable and immovable assets of the accused persons. But, the complainant has failed to produce concrete evidence in respect of a large number of movable and immovable assets, allegedly acquired by the accused No.1, during his tenure as the Chief of RAW," he said.

The Judge pointed out in the present case also, the accused persons are the residents of Noida, beyond the territorial jurisdiction of the court.

"Furthermore, an incomplete evidence has come on record, in the pre summoning evidence of the complainant, regarding a large number of movable and immovable assets, allegedly acquired by the accused persons, during the service period of accused No. 1," he noted.

Citing Supreme Court orders, the Judge directed CBI Director to conduct "investigation in the form of an inquiry" by an officer not below the rank of Superintendent of Police regarding the "income and assets of the accused persons" under Section 202 CrPC and submit report to the court within three months to the court.
