DIG Arvind Sen did not get any relief from the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court in the fake tender case of the Animal Husbandry Department on Thursday.
Arvind Sen is accused in the fake tender scam of the Animal Husbandry Department. The anticipatory bail application of absconding DIG Arvind Sen will now be heard on December 8.
Arvind Sen, the then SP of CBCID and the current DIG of CBCID, is accused in the fraudulent use of fake documents to grab crores from Indore businessman in the name of supply of flour, pulses, wheat and sugar to the Animal Husbandry Department and to save the accused in corruption.
Arvind Sen is accused of taking Rs 35 lakh from accused Ashish Rai to put Manjit Singh, the case’s litigant under pressure.
During the hearing in the Anti Corruption Court, the prosecution opposed the bail application, saying that during interrogation Ashish Rai told the police that he was identified with Arvind Sen while he was the SP of Azamgarh. In order to pressure the plaintiff in the fake tender scam, Ashish Rai gave Rs 35 lakh to Arvind Sen, in which evidence of transfer of Rs 5 lakh from the account of accused Ashish Rai to Arvind Sen’s account has also been found. The remaining Rs 30 lakh were given by Rai in cash to Sen. Ten accused have been arrested in this case so far.
In this case, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has suspended IPS officers Dinesh Chand Dubey and Arvind Sen. In the investigation, there is evidence of both IPS officers being directly connected with the mastermind of the scam, Ashish Rai. At the same time, the FIR of fraud in the Animal Husbandry Department was lodged in Hazratganj Kotwali.
