Rishi Raj Singh, Joint Director of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), was on Thursday transferred to the Economic Offences Wing of the CBI in the city. His transfer comes a day after the ACB filed a charge sheet in the Adarsh scam case against 13 persons, including the former Chief Minister, Ashok Chavan.
“The transfer was long pending. It was decided that he will be transferred after the charge sheet is filed. It is a part of the larger re-shuffle as many Joint Director-level positions are lying vacant,” a highly placed official told The Hindu from Delhi on Thursday.
Mr. Singh will take over as the Joint Director of Zone I of EOW, CBI.
Keshav Kumar, a Delhi-based officer who was earlier handling the additional charge as the Joint Director of EOW, will be the new Joint Director of ACB, CBI.
The ACB on Wednesday chargesheeted senior bureaucrats, politicians, retired army personnel in the Adarsh housing society scam after investigating the case for nearly 17 months. The First Information Report was registered in January last year.
