According to CBI officer, the probe is on and it would be incorrect to say any clean chit has been given to anyone, they said, adding that the agency has already filed a charge sheet and the probe in connection with the disproportionate assets amassed by Singh is progressing steadily.

The officer said, “No one will be spared if they complicity appears in the alleged bribery and corruption case against the Engineer.”

The CBI had registered a case against him registered under criminal conspiracy and provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.

Besides Singh, his wife Kusum Lata, daughter Garima Bhushan and son Sunny Yadav and one more person Rajender Minocha have been booked by CBI for amassing disproportionate assets.
