Tatra trucks case: CBI conducts raids in Delhi, Noida

New Delhi, Wed, 18 Apr 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Apr 18 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday carried out searches in Delhi and Noida as part of its ongoing probe over the deal to supply all-terrain Tatra trucks to the Army.

According to reports, the raids were conducted at the residences of two ex-army officials and a Vectra employee.

The CBI had on Tuesday questioned Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) Chairman and Managing Director V Natarajan in connection with case.

The CBI is investigating the BEML-Tatra deal following Army Chief General VK Singh's allegations that he was offered a bribe of Rs.14 crore by a former Army officer lobbying for the truck

In 1997, Tatra Sipox UK had signed the truck supply deal with BEML,which was in alleged violation of defence procurement rules stating that procurement should be done directly from original equipment manufacturer only, the sources said.

The CBI has alleged that since Tatra Sipox UK was not the original manufacturer of these all-terrain trucks, the rule that defence procurements should be made from original manufacturer was violated. (ANI)
