Guwahati: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reportedly apprehended around four people including a top official of National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) from Guwahati on June 13.
The investigating agency conducted raids across different locations in the country in connection with the alleged irregularities in the National Highway Road Project.
Sleuths of the CBI launched multiple raids in Guwahati, Shillong, Gurugram and Bengaluru on June 12.
Earlier in April, 22 individuals, including NHAI officials, and a consortium of private construction companies were booked by the CBI for alleged corruption in three highway segments from 2008 to 2010.
The investigation found that several officials of NHAI were involved in accepting bribe from the private company for a smooth execution of the projects.
Earlier last month, the CBI had launched a search operation at over ten locations in connection with the National Stock Exchange (NSE) co-location scam involving the financial institution's former MD and CEO Chitra Ramkrishna and the ex-Group Operating Officer Anand Subramanian.
Though the probe agency has been investigating the matter since May 2018, it could not gather any concrete evidence to identify mysterious Himalaya Yogi with whom the classified informations were shared by Ramkrishna.
Recently, the SEBI had imposed a fine of Rs 3 crore on her, following the market regulator's finding that she allegedly shared vital inputs about the NSE with the Yogi.
As per reports, information regarding organizational structure, dividend scenario, financial results, human resource policies and related issues, response to regulator, etc., were shared by her with the mysterious yogi.
Between 2014 and 2016, she sent emails at firstname.lastname@example.org.
