    After the scam came to light in May, the CBI interrogated Bansal, a Congress MP from Chandigarh, for ten hours, but failed to find substantial evidence to nail him.

    The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday gave a clean chit to former railway minister Pawan Bansal in its charge sheet in the cash for posts scam.

    Bansal was forced to quit the ministry after his nephew, Vijay Singla, was caught taking a bribe of Rs 90 lakh to provide a plum posting on the railway board to Mahesh Kumar. Ten people, including Kumar and Singla, have been named in the chargesheet.

    After the scam came to light in May, the CBI interrogated Bansal, a Congress MP from Chandigarh, for ten hours, but failed to find substantial evidence to nail him. In his statement, Bansal denied having any knowledge of his nephew’s activities.

    The CBI had claimed that Singla used to meet Kumar at Bansal’s official residence in Delhi. The agency also claimed that in April, Bansal met Kumar in Mumbai. During this time, Kumar held the position of general manager, western railways.
    During its investigation, the CBI had intercepted more than 80 hours of conversation between Singla and Kumar.

    In May, Singla was arrested with Rs 90 lakh allegedly paid by Kumar in exchange for a post on the board. The entire deal was for Rs 10 crores and Rs 90 lakh was the first installment.

    In fact, a day before the arrest, Kumar was was appointed to the post of railway board member, staff.

    According to the CBI, Kumar originally wanted to head the post of board member, electrical, because that would involve clearing contracts worth hundreds of crores. Others named in CBI’s charge sheet include Sandeep Goyal, Ajay Garg, Manjunath, PV Murali, Rahul Yadav, Samir Sandhir,Sushil Daga and Venugopal.

    How can Con-gress bureau of investigations (aka CBI) can indict any corrupt Con-grassiya? BTW, Ishrat Jahan was not a terrorist; however she was only roaming around with 3-4 terrorists to kill Modi...This is our CBI. What a Shame institutions of this country are becoming - due to shameless 'corrupt to the core' Con-gress.

    He is such a loveable chap, why go after him even if it is believed that he has a Cash for Job Scheme.

    Manmohan and his trusted poodle feels he is a nice chap.

    Believe MMS and the poodle!

    Laloo has full faith in both!

    One Karnataka Minister couple of years ago was accused of rape and he smartly insisted CBI should investigate the matter. The then CM Yeddyurappa put his foot down and said state Crime Deptt is there and sure enough he was put behind bars.

    Even in Arushi Talwar case, UP state police was on right track until CBI came along and muddied the case.

    CBI is eminently `manipulatable`.

    Pawan means wind.

    Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and shady deals respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind (Pawan)..
