The CBI on Tuesday said it would file a charge sheet against Sarabjot Singh, son of National Commission for Scheduled Castes Chairman Buta Singh, within five days in a corruption case.

“Sarabjot alias Sweety and another accused Anup Begi will be charged for criminal conspiracy under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act,” Rishiraj Singh, Director (Western Region), told reporters here.

He, however, refused to divulge whether the statement of Mr. Singh, recorded by the CBI in September last year as a witness, would be included in the charge sheet.

Sarabjot was arrested on July 31 last year for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs one cr. from Nashik-based contractor Ramrao Patil for closing a case pending against him before the Scheduled Castes panel headed by his father.

Along with Sarabjot, three others - Anup Kumar Begi, Madan Singh Solanki and Dhukh Singh Chauhan -- had been arrested.

“Solanki and Chauhan may be shown as approvers in the chargesheet,” Mr. Rishiraj said.
