CBI raids Yadav Singh

58237-yad-new-nd-700Lucknow, Aug 4 - The sleuths of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today launched their investigation against suspended Noida authority engineer-in-chief Yadav Singh and raided several places in Noida. Sources here said an FIR has also been registered by the investigating agency against unnamed persons before launching the raids. A 30-member team from the CBI raided the office of the Noida Authority and at the residence of Singh at sector 50, Noida. Around five teams of the agency are involved in the raids. The CBI officials grilled Noida Chief Engineer A K Goel inside his official chamber and screened documents and computers. A large contingent of police accompanied the CBI sleuths in the raid, which was kept very secret. The CBI acted 20 days after the Allahabad High Court ordered the probe, which was vehemently opposed by the Uttar Pradesh government. The state government was also considering to challenge the CBI probe in the Supreme Court even as a judicial probe set up by the state government against Yadav Singh was also under way.
