Tatra case: CBI quizzes Tejinder, Rishi again

New Delhi, October 23
The CBI today examined Lt Gen (retd) Tejinder Singh and Vectra chairman Ravinder Rishi for the second consecutive day in connection with its probe in the alleged bribe offer made by the retired General to the then Army Chief V K Singh for clearing a tranche of sub-standard Tatra BEML trucks.

Singh denied he had been questioned by the CBI today and claimed that it will be known in the coming days as to why "someone" was raking up this issue one-and-a-half years after the deal.

I have not been called by the CBI today. Investigation will reveal that I am not involved and also the reasons for someone raking it up one-and-a-half years after the alleged incident, he said.

CBI sources, however, maintained that he and Rishi were questioned about some infirmities detected in their statements yesterday.

During the questioning, Singh and Rishi denied having any kind of links with each other, they said. The sources said the two Delhi-based businessmen and two executives of Vectra were also questioned in connection with the case and were asked about their association with the officials of the Defence Ministry.

The then Army Chief Gen (retd) V K Singh had alleged that Singh offered him a bribe of Rs 14 crore in September 2010 to clear the purchase of a tranche of 1,676 substandard Tatra BEML trucks. PTI
