CBI grills Railway Board member Kul Bhushan

CBI sources said Kul Bhushan was called at the agency headquarters for questioning in connection with preliminary enquiry, registered soon after bribery scandal involving former railway minister Pawan Bansal’s nephew had surfaced, which relates to several counts of alleged corrupt practices including purchase of ‘benami’ properties.

They said Kul Bhushan who arrived at the headquarters in the morning was subjected to intense questioning till very late in the evening.

The sources said it is alleged that Kul Bhushan had acquired several ‘benami’ properties worth several crore from Railway contractors in lieu of favours promised to them.

Citing one such instance, the sources claimed, that a flat worth Rs 1.80 crore was allegedly purchased as ‘benami property’ in Bangalore as an accomodation for his son, who works abroad and was expecting a posting in the city.

But, the sources claimed, son could not get the posting at Bangalore and was posted in Delhi.
It is alleged that Kul Bhushan also helped in nurturing vendor cartels at Level II in RDSO which wanted to stop contractors from upgrading from Level I to Level II to maintain its monopoly in bagging contracts.

The sources said it is alleged in the enquiry that he helped a renowned-builder by granting relief in terms and condition for the development of Rail Land Development Authority prime land at Sarai Rohilla.
