RSP ED arrested by CBI on graft charges

Bhubaneswar: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) Executive Director (Works) BP Burma today allegedly for taking bribe.

Burma was arrested on the allegation of taking Rs 1 lakh bribe to pass a tender, said CBI SP.
Earlier on Sunday, a six-day team of the CBI had raided the house and office of Burma at Sector-19 here and seized Rs 20L cash of Rs 2000 denomination from his possession. The officials had seized some important documents during the search.

Investigation into seizure of huge cash of Rs 2000 denomination from Burma’s possession is underway, said CBI. Though Burma was transferred to Bokaro Steel Plant as executive director (Works and Project) three days ago, he has not joined his duty there yet.

On Wednesday, officials of the investigating agency had raided the office and residence of RSP officers – Harekrushna Behera and AK Karmakar– on charges of irregularities in goods procurement.
