Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested its own Deputy Police Superintendent Devendra Kumar in a bribery case on Monday. The CBI arrested its official in connection to the corruption allegations against Special Director Rakesh Asthana. Devendra Kumar is arrested in connection with the case of meat exporter Moin Qureshi, under the charges of falsification of records.

However, the case seems to have taken a political twist as the Congress President Rahul Gandhi targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the discord and indicted for using the agency as a weapon for political benefits. As per a report in NDTV, some source from the Prime Minister’s office has said that the CBI did not seek permission to act against its officer, Asthana which is mandatory in these types of cases.

Earlier, Sathish Sana alleged that he was asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 crore to Mr Asthana, the investigating officer to be rid of the case. According to reports in Manoj Prasad, a Dubai based investment banker was allegedly the middleman who asked him to pay this bribe.
