CBI warrant against senior IAS officer in plot allotment scam


A special court of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against senior Uttar Pradesh IAS officer Rajeev Kumar over a plot allotment scam, according to a report published in the media.

SBI Judge G Sridevi issued the warrant against Kumar for his role in the scam in Noida. He was sentenced to three years on November 20, 2012.

Kumar, who was appointed Secretary in the state, was indicted by special CBI judge S Lal in 2012, along with former Chief Secretary Neera Yadav.

He had approached the Allahabad High Court against the order.

However, the court dismissed his petition for relief after which the state Government was forced to remove him from his post.
