Court refuses scribe's CBI custody, sends him to 14-days in jail

Thursday, May 10, 2018

New Delhi: A city court yesterday sent journalist Upendra Rai, arrested for his alleged involvement in dubious financial transactions, to 14-day judicial custody after rejecting CBI's plea for his custody for five more days.

"I am rejecting your application," Special CBI Judge Santosh Snehi Mann said in response to the investigative agency's argument that the scribe's custodial interrogation was necessary to carry forward the investigation. The court thereafter sent him to judicial custody till May 23.

CBI counsel Manoj Shukla sought 5-day custody of Rai, saying certain new grounds had come up and the journalist was required to be confronted with them. It also said that the journalist's bank locker had to be searched for which his presence was required, but Rai's counsel argued that they could open the locker without his presence.

The CBI had on May 3 arrested the Delhi-based scribe for allegedly indulging in dubious financial transactions and getting an airport access pass made by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) by furnishing false information.

The court had earlier sent Rai to three-day CBI custody after the agency said several incriminating material were recovered during the probe and he has not been cooperating in the investigation.
