Chandigarh, July 15

The special CBI court, Panchkula, on Thursday sent three accused arrested in a Rs 5-lakh bribery case related to the pending bills of Parbati Hydroelectric Project in Kullu, HP to five-day police remand.

Harjeet Singh Puri, Chief General Manager (CGM) (Finance), NHPC, Faridabad; Sunil Mendiratta, Senior General Manager (Project) of Gammon CMC Joint Venture and Sanchit Saini, Delhi resident, were arrested on Wednesday.

On Thursday, CBI counsel Kanwar Pal Singh sought seven-day remand on the ground that earlier also bribe had been paid and interrogation was must to unearth the racket.

As per the CBI, the Gammon CMC Joint Venture was working in Parbati Hydroelectric Project (Stage-II) of the NHPC located near Kullu and has two claims of Rs 1.36 crore and Rs 1.9 crore and pending bills of Rs 2 crore. Mendiratta requested the NHPC CGM to clear the dues, for which he allegedly demanded the bribe. On Wednesday, the agency laid a trap and he was caught accepting bribe.
