Sandeep Wadhwa, Managing Director of a Delhi-based firm, was on Friday sent to judicial custody for 14 days by a Delhi court after the Central Bureau of Investigation said that his custodial quizzing was over in a corruption case linked to supply of logistical equipments for the Commonwealth Games.
“The accused is remanded to judicial custody till March 25,” Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini said.
The probe agency, in its remand application, said that Mr. Wadhwa, who had been interrogated in custody for four days, be sent to jail as the probe vis-à-vis him was over.
Earlier, the judge, allowing the CBI to interrogate Mr. Wadhwa in custody, said “I find that there is incriminating material on record to the effect that two instalments of bribe were paid by the accused to the officials of Organising Committee of the CWG.”
Mr. Wadhwa, the MD of Comfort Net, which is a part of the Switzerland-based Nussli India consortium, was arrested on March 7 in connection with alleged irregularities in the award of contracts for overlays for over Rs. 600 crore.
