New Delhi, November 24
The CBI has filed a chargesheet against two Navy Commanders, Jagdeesh and Abhishek Shaw, in connection with the alleged leakage of confidential information related to INS Sindhuratna-MRLC project, officials said on Wednesday.
In the fresh chargesheet, the agency has also named Commander Ajit Pandey and retired naval officer Commodore Randeep Singh for alleged "leakage of information related to advance payment related to INS Sindhuratna-MRLC project", they said.
They said while two chargesheets had already been filed against six people earlier, the probe against Navy officers Commander Jagdish, who was arrested on September 21, and Commander Abhishek Shaw was still on.
The CBI filed its chargesheet against Commander Jagdeesh and Commander Shaw on November 20, they said.
Several accused, including retired officers Commodore Randeep Singh and Commander SJ Singh, serving officer Commander Ajit Pandey, Commander Jagdish and the executive director of Hyderabad-based Allen Reinforced Plastics Limited have already been granted default bail in the matter, they said.
The defence counsel had successfully managed to point out that the CBI admitted the Officials Secrets Act (OSA) probe was on but failed to mention it in the chargesheet which made the chargesheet against the accused incomplete, making them eligible for default bail.
An accused becomes eligible for default bail if the investigating agency does not file a charge sheet within the stipulated period of 60 days or 90 days depending on the charges pressed. PTI
