New Delhi: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) carried out a raid on its own headquarters in the case involving bribery charges against its Special Director Rakesh Asthana. However, this is not the first time when CBI raided its own headquarter.
Not first time.
On December 27 last year, CBI raided CBI HQ and arrested an official named Ajay Garg for creating an illicit software using CBI resources for duping the Tatkal ticket booking system of IRCTC https://t.co/pDowmjuzvx

Earlier on December 27, 2017, Central Bureau of Investigation raided CBI headquarter and arrested an official named Ajay Garg for creating an illicit software using CBI resources for duping the Tatkal ticket booking system of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).
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.
