Bansal asked his victims to deposit money in NGO account as a donation.
Jaipur: BSNL general manager Rajesh Bansal who was arrested by the CBI for taking a bribe of Rs 1 lakh in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur had come up with a ‘unique way’ to hide his bribe money. He opened a non-government organization (NGO) and asked his victims to deposit money in its bank account as a donation. It helped Bansal stay out of the radar of income tax department.
The CBI has come to know that Bansal was running the NGO – Apna Ghar – on the pretext of helping orphan children from poor background.
The CBI is examining the registration documents of the NGO and its bank account for further investigation. Bansal was deputed as BSNL general manager in Bharatpur since December, 2015. The investigation agency on Friday also arrested BSNL’s retired junior account ML Bansal. The account retired from the same office recently. He was playing the role of a mediator in corruption deals for the general manager.
Bansal and his middlemen were brought to Jaipur for further investigation. They have been booked under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
