Bhupinder Singh Hooda's PS booked in disproportionate assets case
New Delhi, Sep 5: Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's principal secretary Murari Lal Tayal has been booked by the CBI for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets.
Tayal, already under the CBI scanner in connection with a case of land allotment irregularities, has been booked along with his family members -- Savita Tayal, Kartik Tayal and Malvika Tayal -- and a firm Kappac Pharma Limited.
The FIR, registered last night, alleges that Tayal amassed Rs 10 crore of assets during 2006-14 which he could not explain from his known sources of income. The agency has filed the FIR under provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had in May questioned Chattar Singh, a UPSC member and the then principal secretary of Bhupinder Singh Hooda in connection to an alleged graft case. Officials said Singh was examined in connection to its probe into alleged irregularities in the allocation of industrial plots in Panchkula.
