Former Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat would appear before the crime branch on Wednesday in connection with Louis Berger bribery case.
“We have summoned Kamat and he would be appearing at around 3 p.m.,” a senior crime branch official said.
Mr. Kamat, who was summoned on Tuesday, had failed to appear before the investigating officer.
Since the Congress leader (Mr. Kamat) is an MLA and the House is in session, the summons was routed through the Assembly Speaker.
Mr. Kamat said he will cooperate with the agencies.
“I will go to crime branch today. I have nothing to hide,” said Mr. Kamat, who was heading the state between 2007-2012 when Louis Berger company reportedly paid bribe.
The U.S. Company bribed the ministers to win consultancy for water augmentation and sewerage line project executed under JICA (Japan International cooperation agency) funding.
The Crime branch on Tuesday had questioned former public works department minister Churchill Alemao.
Police have already arrested A. Wachasunder, a senior official who headed the controversial JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) water project in Goa that is at the centre of the pay off case.
His bail application will be heard by a local court this afternoon.
