MHA official arrested by CBI

NEW DELHI, May 15:
The Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) today arrested Ministry of Home Affairs Under Secretary Anand Joshi, who had gone ”missing” the day, when he was to be questioned by the agency.
Joshi and unknown persons were booked by CBI on May 9, in connection with the charges of issuing Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) notices to several NGOs in an arbitrary manner, with a motive to make financial gains.
”Based on a tip-off, Joshi’s movements were tracked and he was finally traced in West Delhi’s Tilak Nagar area. He was detained at 1700 hrs and brought here at CBI headquarters for questioning.
At around 2000 hrs, he was formally arrested,” a senior CBI official said. The official added that Joshi’s family was ”not cooperating” in the investigation.
On May 11, Joshi was asked by the sleuths to come for examination in this same case. However, the case took a new turn, when he didn’t turn up for questioning and his wife Minakshi said that she had no knowledge about his whereabouts. When she woke up in the morning, Joshi had already left the house, she added.
“Till 0200 hrs, we were together. When we woke up this morning, he wasn’t there. He was suffering from depression from the last two-three years,” said Minakshi on May 11. She added that investigation must be done against the senior MHA official. (UNI)
