Sub: Court respite for importer –>> CORRUPTION at Nhava Sheva Port.

Read this news story that has been carried by Mumbai Times of India dated 14.05.2006. 

It looks like there is more CORRUPTION at Nhava Sheva Port. Who is incharge of of this port ? Have you taken any action on this officer ? Can you SUSPEND him for all these IRREGULARITIES going on at Nhava Sheva ? Are you protecting that officer ? Is there a COVER UP going on at Mumbai Customs ? 

Court respite for importer

TNN

Mumbai, 14 May, 2006 : Despite claims by customs officials of an importer undervaluing goods from Hong Kong, the high court has allowed clearance of goods of the company on the principle of equality, after the latter alleged discrimination by the customs department. 
   

The department had collected ‘evidence’ that the company, D K Labs, an importer of car speakers and amplifiers, had undervalued goods claiming them to be worth Rs 12.58 lakh. It had asked the company to deposit a bank guarantee of more than Rs 1 crore. The company argued that similar consignments at Nhava Sheva port were cleared.

_____________________________

1. Who is the officer at Nhava Sheva Port ? WHat actions have you taken ?

2. Why there is so much CORRUPTION at Nhava Shea Port ? Are you covering his officer and protecting this officer ?

Dear Sir,

Are you also part of the team which is resorting to victimisation and
harassment.

Why is Narayan Singh after me like leach? Why had Narayan Singh audacity
to inform one of the Supdt. posted in AIU that he had got me transferred
from Vigilance? Why did he tell another Supdt. that he has got four filres
opened against me in vigilance and that he would ensure that I do not go
to CBI on deputation?

Had I not requested you to protect me from Narayan Singh? Now Bathija has
also joined Narayan Singh?

Don’t you know that Narayan Singh had been receiveing bribe from Airport
Officials like BN Ojha for clearing carriers? Don’t you know that Narayan
Singh Cell number is 9821229380 which is a third party number and he pays
thousands of rupees monthly bill? Is it not true that there were several
complanits against Narayan Singh in vigilance which were closed? Don’t you
know that Narayan Singh had tried to protyect DS Tilwani also? Is it not
true that Narayan Singh had also protected Alok Garg by leaking the
contents of files attended by me? Why are you protecting Narayan Singh?

Do you agree with allegation that I had accepted bribe of Rs.4 crores from
Taufik Haji Gaffar? If so why do you not call Taufik Haji Gaffar himself
and verify the fact? Do you not know know what manipulations were beiung
done in Delhi High court to get the detention order of Taufik Haji Gaffar
quashed by Ram Jethmalani and Chidambaram after which I had complained to
President of India after which Taufik was detained?

Why did you not call the Rahul Bahandari and Meena two officers of Central
Excise who allegedly bribed me for not suspending them as per news report
published in Surat newspaper?

I am being victimised and harrased by the officers of vigilance
directorate to protect Alok Garg and other senior officers of the
department. I know who was tout of your Additional Director General and
her husband in Delhi with whom they used to go for dinner in Sidhdhartha
Hotel, Pusa Road, Delhi. I know how Taufik Haji Gaffar was helped by
officers of Customs when he was arrested by CIU in 1999 in bogus bank
gaurantee case.I have documenatary proof to show how one of the Deputy
Commissioner, Surat DRI, presently posted in the Directorate General of
vigilance, had protected Taufik in a DRI case in connivance with KO Paul,
SIO/ DRI, Man Singh SIO/ DRI and Parveen Katyal /I.O., DRI. I know how Dr.
NK Soren has been protected by Directorate General of Vigilance in a
export fraud case inspite of clear cut evidence of Jayesh gala against
him. I know how many Rebate files of Avinash Exports, Surat, have been
been sanctioned by another Depurty Commissioner, presently posted in the
Directorate General of Vigilance, looking after Surat Rebate Case on the
basis of forgeed export documents alonwith Surendra Mehta. I know how an
Asstt. Commissioner of Vigilance has managed to come to Vigilance Mumbai
from Kalkata to remain in Mumbai within two months. Can he go against
whimds and fancy of senior officers? I am aware that one of your Supdt.
was in touch with Editor Surat Saamna and Tejas Desai and tried to scuttle
the Surat Rebate investigation. Please ask VH Bathija how many carriers he
used to clkear every night when he was in AIU and batch and how many girls
he used to screw. I know at least one lady whom Bathija used to screw? I
know how PK Sinha has been protected by ADG/Vig, WZU, inspite of his
having signed the DRI-I backdated in CSD case. I know how the enquries of
SK Bharadwaj, retired Member CBEC, DS Sra, then Commissioner of Customs
(General), Mumbai and now Chif Commissioner have been scuttled to allow
them to retire peacefully and avail promotion.

Your department is digging my grave. They are asking the address of my
dead father for a flat alreadty intimated to the department under Rule 18
(2)of Conducr Rules.

You are posted in Vigilance to eradicate corruption from customs whereas
you are protecting the corrupots and vicimising the sincere and honests.
Had I been so corrupt why did you ask me to join vigilance and entrusted
me the enquiry of Surat Rebate case?

You project yourself as one of the honest officer in the department but
have you ever tried to defend me inspite of knowing fully well that
enquiries conducted by VH Bathija, MA Andrade and Narayan Singh are based
on personal vendetta.

Since you are one of the blue eyed boy of DG, Vigilance and know me well,
I request you to request him to close all my files and punish Narayan
Singh and others who were instrumental in opening these files.

Since I have already been placed under cloud for none of my mistake and
for performing my duties with sincereity and honestly, I am not bothered
about my career and will expose every corrupt officers of the departement.

My father and brothers have left for me enough property to look after
their families and my family. Please send me to jail after dismissal from
service and keep honests like Narayan Singh, VH Bathija, MA Andrade, PB
Chitre, SS Rana, Satish Agrawal, Surendra Mehta, Alok Garg, Saudan Singh, HN Prasd, Ravindra Kumar and Dr. NK Soren etc. in the department.

I am copying this email to the President of India, CVC and others to let
them know how the West Zone Unit of the Directoratae General of Vigilance
is victimising and harrasing me to protect corrupt officials of customs.

Regards,
VBSingh

Dear Smt. Neerja Shah,

Again, this is Mr. V. M. Kumaraswamy, MBA. in business since 1971. Founder and Moderator of India’s largest e-governance Yahoogroup under the title eGovINDIA. You can reach this group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eGovINDIA

eGovINDIA, INDIA WBA, EKAVI and INDIA RTI has taken up this matter in their forum so that the corrupt officers are unable to scuttle the sensitive investigations and do not go unpunished. The honest officers should not be intimidated by the corrupt officers having backing of senior officers and ministers.

Today the honest officers of Customs and Central Excise and their families are feeling insecure due to the criminal attitude of corrupts who all are ganging up together due to blessings of senior officers of the department and CBEC.

Thanks for replying to my questions.

You wrote: This office has received the complaint from Shri Ravinder Kumar, President , Rashtriya Mukti Morcha, Delhi, enclosed with your e-mail.  The same is under investigation.  It is premature to comment on the validity of the said complaint at this stage. "

So according to your letter to me, your office is investigating Mr. V. B. Singh on the basis of the Complaint filed by Shri. Ravinder Kumar ? Am I correct in writing this ? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Complaint of Ravinder Kumar raises several questions itself for CBEC, CIU, DRI, Vigilance Department and CBI.

Please provide the answers by email.

Were there any other complaints against Mr. V. B. Singh before this complaint of Ravinder Kumar ? Please let us know.

Was Taufik Haji Gaffar arrested and detained ? How did this happen ?

Did this happen because of Mr. V. B. Singh’s Emails and letters to our Hon. President ?

Did you know anything about these letters written by Mr. V. B. Singh to Hon. President ?

You allowed Mr. V. B. Singh to join Vigilance due to the case of Taufik Haji Gaffar. If I am wrong, please correct me and let me know.

You entrusted Mr. V. B. Singh to investigate one of the most sensitive case i.e. Surat Rebate case after Mr. V. B. Singh joined Vigilance ? Is this correct ? If I am wrong please correct me and let me know. If it yes, then your trusted Mr. V. B. Singh.  

Now let us read the Complaint of Ravinder Kumar. My questions will be in color to you. Please answer them for our clarifications.

________________________________________

Here is the actual complaint letter of Ravinder Kumar, on which Investigation is going on in Customs office conducted by you and your officers.

I, Ravinder Kumar, President, Rashtriya Mukti Morcha, having its office at 37, Angad Nagar Extension, Delhi – 100092, would like to apprise you about the corrupt and illegal activities of the biggest fraudster of customs Shri Vijay Bahadur Singh, Superintendent Customs (Vigilance), Mumbai, presently on deputation to Central Bureau of Investigation.

Shri Vijay Bahadur Singh, Superintendent Vigilance Customs, Mumbai is a classic example of the proverb “Wolf in the garb of sheep”.

He is not only a known corrupt official but also a great cheater, hand in glove with the criminals. The glaring example is the ill-famed case of M/s. Resham Exports. In this case during 1999-2001 at the instance of SIIB Exports, New Custom House Mumbai, a case was framed against one Shri Taufique. This was a perfect case for invoking COFEPOSA orders by the Detention Authority but Shri V.B. Singh allegedly took huge bribe from Shri.Taufique and deliberately did not put up most vital and important proper documents for perusal of the COFEPOSA Board and thus saved him from the jail/detention.


So from the complaint of Ravinder Kumar, we all can see and read that there was a case in 1999-2001 against TAUFIK HAJI GAFFAR . Question raises, Who arrested TAUFIK in 1999 ? Who was the Deputy Commissioner in 1999 when this arrest was made by CIU ? Did Mr. V. B. Singh arrested TAUFIK in 1999 ?


From the paper articles we read that TAUFIK was arrested by Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) ? Why DY Commissioner of CIU did not invoke COFEEPOSA Act in 1999 is the question to be answered now ? Is this person still in your office in Mumbai ? Why your office did not punish then DY Commissioner of CIU in 1999 in your office for not invoking COFEEPOSA ACT in 1999 ? I hope we will get information on these questions.


In another article it says that Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) V. H. Bhatija on 07-03-2001 arrested TAUFIK. Is this correct from your records? Did DRI Mr. V. H. Bhatija invoke COFEEPOSA Act at the time of arrest of TAUFIK in 2001 ? Did your office punish Mr. V. H. Bhatija for not invoking COFEEPOSA Act in 2001? Is Mr. V. H Bhatija still in your office ? Please let us know.


Who is enquiring Mr. V. B. Singh’s case in Vigilance ?


Those observations of the Hon’ble High Court of Mumbai are available on the relevant file of the department. In this case, the government has lost more than 100 crores under DEEC / DEPB scheme, but no action was taken against Shri V.B. Singh.


How does Mr. Ravinder Kumar knows about these files of your department ? Does Ravinder Kumar works part time in your office in Mumbai ?


Further, Shri V.B. Singh, during 2002-03 allegedly taken a bribe of crores of rupees from one CHA M/s. Shri Ram Clearing & Forwarding Agents for bestowing favours in that case. The company was recently till May 2005 was bribing Shri. V.B. Singh by way of providing advertisement to website of Shri.V.B.Singh by name “2knowclick.com”.

It is pertinent to note that due to his posting in DG Vigilance, Mumbai, he has withdrawn the advertisement of Shri Ram Clearing & Forwarding Agents but a blank box is still visible. However by way of going to archives files and some other methods, the earlier advertised pages of same can be retrieved.

Shri V.B. Singh has amassed huge wealth and property (mainly in benami names). This website is being run by his wife Mrs. Anita Singh from his palatial flat at Mulund (East) Mumbai. She also owns crores of rupees property in Bengali Pura, Dehradun.


How does Mr. Ravinder Kumar knows all this about your employee ?


Shri V.B. Singh, the perverted brain in Customs is engaged in hob-nobbing with local CBI officers and furnishing them made-up stories against sincere and honest officers with a view to blackmail them.


Do you think Mr. V. B Singh has perverted brain ? If he has how can he still be working in your Department ?

It may please be noted that Shri Taufique, the brain behind M/s Resham Exports case had brought Rs. 4 crore to be deposited in govt. treasury but on the instructions of Shri V.B. Singh, did not do so but parted this money with him illegally.

He has the habit of of making frivolous complaints of his own colleagues and neighbours like in a recent past he wrote to CIU/NCH Mumbai in 2003/2004 that Shri A.K. Tale,, Assistant Commissioner, New Delhi was staying in Flat No. 88/5, 85/5 and 92/5, New Custom Quarters, 5-Wadala, Mumbi with his family and creating trouble to the neighbours.

However, after investigation it was revealed that it was the handiwork of this perverted brain i.e. V.B. Singh, who wrote this complaint to extort money from Shri A.K. Tak as he was staying there to complete his son’s and daughter’s Board examinations. Another glaring example of his mind is that when he was posted in U.B Centre as Carnet/Triptique Officer for one year but he was not getting the Baggage Forms cleared by the then Superintendent Shri Vipin Bavisi, he preferred to make a complaint to CBI for this and got his own office raided. The above examples are just tip of the iceberg which shows his perverted state-of-mind.

It is requested that a thorough inquiry be carried out against Shri V.B. Singh in the above matter and ACB branch of CBI may please be entrusted to look into the allegations and registration of a regular case.

Since, Shri V.B. Singh has been transferred on deputation to CBI itself. His presence there shall creat impediments for the department (CBI) to take action against him. An official having a criminal record and doubtful integrity should not have been taken on deputation to CBI.

In the interest of pubity in public life, Shri V.B. Singh, should immediately be repatriate to his parent cadre to face the music such as suspension and investigation.

I once again request you to look into the matter and take immediate action in this regard.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,

Sd/-

(RAVINDRA KUMAR)

MUMBAI: In one of the largest drug hauls in the country, sleuths of the Mumbai Narcotics Control Bureau on Saturday seized 200 kg of cocaine worth Rs 800 million from Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust area here.

Five people were detained for questioning.

“We have seized 200 kg of high grade cocaine from a vessel near the JNPT area following a tip off. Five people have been detained in this connection,” an officer of the bureau said.

He refused to give details of the haul.

“Please contact us in the morning for the details as investigation are still on,” he said.

200 kg India’s biggest cocaine haul at Mumbai port

http://www.indianexpress.com/iep/sunday/story/5756.html

N Ganesh / Smita Nair

Posted online: Sunday, June 04, 2006 at 0000 hrs

Mumbai, June 3:In what law-enforcement authorities say is the biggest ever cocaine haul in India, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) today seized 200 kg of the drug from a cargo vessel at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in Panvel, about 65 km from Mumbai.

Director General of Narcotics Control Bureau K C Verma told The Sunday Express in New Delhi: “This is unheard of and is unprecedented. We have been working on this for the past one-and-a-half months.”

Officials said the cocaine is worth over Rs 90 crore in the local market. They said the ship owned by Maersk had come in from Hong Kong. In early May, 142 kg of cocaine (worth about Rs 60 crore) was seized in Hong Kong and Guangdong, in neighbouring southern China, after a first ever joint operation conducted by agencies from US, Hong Kong and China for three months. The drug syndicate behind it was from Colombia and mainland China. “The cocaine consignment meant for India was lifted from Colombia, taken to Hong Kong and brought to Mumbai,” said an official. Ajit Patel, NCB Superintendent, said the seizure ‘‘followed a tip-off from international sources.’’ The ship S L Voyager anchored at Maersk’s exclusive jetty at the International Gateway on the southern side of JNPT this morning. Around 4 pm, before the cargo could be unloaded, 10 NCB officers of boarded the vessel. ‘‘They were well-informed, they did not have any trouble in locating the one container that had the cocaine,’’ the NCB official said. Officials found canvas bags containing the drug, stashed between logs of teak. Officials said a Mumbai-based firm, whose identity is not being revealed, had imported the teak, ‘‘which is the legal consignment.’’ No arrests have been made until late tonight. In September 2005, the Mumbai Police made one of the biggest arms hauls from a container at the JNPT port.

Narayan Singh, S/o Lt. Ram Sharan, Village, manjhawali, P.s. Chhainsa, Dist..-Faridabad, State Haryana, was appointed as a Assistant in Customs Department in the yesar 1985, continuing his service since 20years he has earned more than 300 Crores of black money, which is directly a matter of disproportionate asset, more than the actual income, which shows a connection with bribery, black mailing, and underworld of Mumbai. According to definite information, this person has a Digital Diary in which he has stored the records of his urban and movable properties, bank accounts, lockers, and other sensational information’s. This person is the Superintendent of Central Cigilance in Customs Department at Mumbai. His Telephone numbers are, residence:0224015681, and Mobile no.:09821229380, Vinay Singh (Brother of Narayan Singh) Mobile No.:093502254552 and Mukesh Singh (Brother of Narayan Singh) Mobile No.:09350846776, which can be Tapped and more information’s can be gathered. According to got information’s, this person have weapons from Pistols to AK-47, more than 1000 round bullets, and has got connections with big shot underworld Dons. If necessary and quick actions are not taken against the criminal acts of this person,if he didn’t have the fear of law and order then it is quite possible that Indian Govt. may face any embarrassing situation. He has a son and a daughter and his in-laws residence is in Patasini Village in Jahajjar in Haryana and his wife name is Sunita

Dear Smt. Neerja Shah,

Again, this is Mr. V. M. Kumaraswamy, MBA. in business since 1971. Founder and Moderator of India's largest e-governance Yahoogroup under the title eGovINDIA. You can reach this group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eGovINDIA

eGovINDIA, INDIA WBA, EKAVI and INDIA RTI has taken up this matter in their forum so that the corrupt officers are unable to scuttle the sensitive investigations and do not go unpunished. The honest officers should not be intimidated by the corrupt officers having backing of senior officers and ministers.

Today the honest officers of Customs and Central Excise and their families are feeling insecure due to the criminal attitude of corrupts who all are ganging up together due to blessings of senior officers of the department and CBEC.

Thanks for replying to my questions.

You wrote: " This office has received the complaint from Shri Ravinder Kumar, President , Rashtriya Mukti Morcha, Delhi, enclosed with your e-mail.  The same is under investigation.  It is premature to comment on the validity of the said complaint at this stage. "

So according to your letter to me, your office is investigating Mr. V. B. Singh on the basis of the Complaint filed by Shri. Ravinder Kumar ? Am I correct in writing this ? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Complaint of Ravinder Kumar raises several questions itself for CBEC, CIU, DRI, Vigilance Department and CBI.

Please provide the answers by email.

Were there any other complaints against Mr. V. B. Singh before this complaint of Ravinder Kumar ? Please let us know.

Was Taufik Haji Gaffar arrested and detained ? How did this happen ?

Did this happen because of Mr. V. B. Singh's Emails and letters to our Hon. President ?

Did you know anything about these letters written by Mr. V. B. Singh to Hon. President ?

You allowed Mr. V. B. Singh to join Vigilance due to the case of Taufik Haji Gaffar. If I am wrong, please correct me and let me know.

You entrusted Mr. V. B. Singh to investigate one of the most sensitive case i.e. Surat Rebate case after Mr. V. B. Singh joined Vigilance ? Is this correct ? If I am wrong please correct me and let me know. If it yes, then your trusted Mr. V. B. Singh.  

Now let us read the Complaint of Ravinder Kumar. My questions will be in color to you. Please answer them for our clarifications.

________________________________________

Here is the actual complaint letter of Ravinder Kumar, on which Investigation is going on in Customs office conducted by you and your officers.

I, Ravinder Kumar, President, Rashtriya Mukti Morcha, having its office at 37, Angad Nagar Extension, Delhi - 100092, would like to apprise you about the corrupt and illegal activities of the biggest fraudster of customs Shri Vijay Bahadur Singh, Superintendent Customs (Vigilance), Mumbai, presently on deputation to Central Bureau of Investigation.

Shri Vijay Bahadur Singh, Superintendent Vigilance Customs, Mumbai is a classic example of the proverb “Wolf in the garb of sheep”.

He is not only a known corrupt official but also a great cheater, hand in glove with the criminals. The glaring example is the ill-famed case of M/s. Resham Exports. In this case during 1999-2001 at the instance of SIIB Exports, New Custom House Mumbai, a case was framed against one Shri Taufique. This was a perfect case for invoking COFEPOSA orders by the Detention Authority but Shri V.B. Singh allegedly took huge bribe from Shri.Taufique and deliberately did not put up most vital and important proper documents for perusal of the COFEPOSA Board and thus saved him from the jail/detention.


So from the complaint of Ravinder Kumar, we all can see and read that there was a case in 1999-2001 against TAUFIK HAJI GAFFAR . Question raises, Who arrested TAUFIK in 1999 ? Who was the Deputy Commissioner in 1999 when this arrest was made by CIU ? Did Mr. V. B. Singh arrested TAUFIK in 1999 ?


From the paper articles we read that TAUFIK was arrested by Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) ? Why DY Commissioner of CIU did not invoke COFEEPOSA Act in 1999 is the question to be answered now ? Is this person still in your office in Mumbai ? Why your office did not punish then DY Commissioner of CIU in 1999 in your office for not invoking COFEEPOSA ACT in 1999 ? I hope we will get information on these questions.


In another article it says that Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) V. H. Bhatija on 07-03-2001 arrested TAUFIK. Is this correct from your records? Did DRI Mr. V. H. Bhatija invoke COFEEPOSA Act at the time of arrest of TAUFIK in 2001 ? Did your office punish Mr. V. H. Bhatija for not invoking COFEEPOSA Act in 2001? Is Mr. V. H Bhatija still in your office ? Please let us know.


Who is enquiring Mr. V. B. Singh's case in Vigilance ?


Those observations of the Hon’ble High Court of Mumbai are available on the relevant file of the department. In this case, the government has lost more than 100 crores under DEEC / DEPB scheme, but no action was taken against Shri V.B. Singh.


How does Mr. Ravinder Kumar knows about these files of your department ? Does Ravinder Kumar works part time in your office in Mumbai ?


Further, Shri V.B. Singh, during 2002-03 allegedly taken a bribe of crores of rupees from one CHA M/s. Shri Ram Clearing & Forwarding Agents for bestowing favours in that case. The company was recently till May 2005 was bribing Shri. V.B. Singh by way of providing advertisement to website of Shri.V.B.Singh by name “2knowclick.com”.

It is pertinent to note that due to his posting in DG Vigilance, Mumbai, he has withdrawn the advertisement of Shri Ram Clearing & Forwarding Agents but a blank box is still visible. However by way of going to archives files and some other methods, the earlier advertised pages of same can be retrieved.

Shri V.B. Singh has amassed huge wealth and property (mainly in benami names). This website is being run by his wife Mrs. Anita Singh from his palatial flat at Mulund (East) Mumbai. She also owns crores of rupees property in Bengali Pura, Dehradun.


How does Mr. Ravinder Kumar knows all this about your employee ?


Shri V.B. Singh, the perverted brain in Customs is engaged in hob-nobbing with local CBI officers and furnishing them made-up stories against sincere and honest officers with a view to blackmail them.


Do you think Mr. V. B Singh has perverted brain ? If he has how can he still be working in your Department ?

It may please be noted that Shri Taufique, the brain behind M/s Resham Exports case had brought Rs. 4 crore to be deposited in govt. treasury but on the instructions of Shri V.B. Singh, did not do so but parted this money with him illegally.

He has the habit of of making frivolous complaints of his own colleagues and neighbours like in a recent past he wrote to CIU/NCH Mumbai in 2003/2004 that Shri A.K. Tale,, Assistant Commissioner, New Delhi was staying in Flat No. 88/5, 85/5 and 92/5, New Custom Quarters, 5-Wadala, Mumbi with his family and creating trouble to the neighbours.

However, after investigation it was revealed that it was the handiwork of this perverted brain i.e. V.B. Singh, who wrote this complaint to extort money from Shri A.K. Tak as he was staying there to complete his son’s and daughter’s Board examinations. Another glaring example of his mind is that when he was posted in U.B Centre as Carnet/Triptique Officer for one year but he was not getting the Baggage Forms cleared by the then Superintendent Shri Vipin Bavisi, he preferred to make a complaint to CBI for this and got his own office raided. The above examples are just tip of the iceberg which shows his perverted state-of-mind.

It is requested that a thorough inquiry be carried out against Shri V.B. Singh in the above matter and ACB branch of CBI may please be entrusted to look into the allegations and registration of a regular case.

Since, Shri V.B. Singh has been transferred on deputation to CBI itself. His presence there shall creat impediments for the department (CBI) to take action against him. An official having a criminal record and doubtful integrity should not have been taken on deputation to CBI.

In the interest of pubity in public life, Shri V.B. Singh, should immediately be repatriate to his parent cadre to face the music such as suspension and investigation.

I once again request you to look into the matter and take immediate action in this regard.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,

Sd/-

(RAVINDRA KUMAR)
