Trial has started in the Rs 40-lakh bribery case involving former Economic Offences Wing (EOW) DSP RC Meena and two businessmen in the Special CBI Court.

Meena, now retired, was arrested on August 13, 2015, by the CBI in a bribery case along with EOW SI Surinder Kumar (now dead), Sanjay Dahuja, who owns a dealership of Hyundai Motors in Chandigarh and Panchkula, and Aman Grover, owner of KLG Hotel, for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 70 lakh (Rs 40 lakh in cash and Rs 30 lakh in post-dated cheques).

According to the CBI, the accused had allegedly hatched a conspiracy to obtain gratification from the complainant for not arresting her parents and brother in an FIR dated December 26, 2014, registered against her parents. On August 11, 2015, Meena and Surinder allegedly demanded Rs 75 lakh through Aman Grover and Sajnay Dahuja, which was on August 12, 2015, reduced to Rs 70 lakh.

During resumed hearing in the case today, the complainant identified accused Aman Grover and Sanjay Dahuja who were present in the court.

The accused had moved nearly 45 applications in the court to delay framing of charges, which were finally framed on July 24, 2019, against the accused under Sections 120-B of the IPC and Sections 7 and 13 (1) (d) read with 13 (2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Meanwhile, the CBI Court allowed Sanjay Dahuja to go abroad after furnishing surety of Rs 50 lakh. Dahuja had sought permission from the court to travel to Azerbaijan.
