The Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court today granted interim protection from arrest to seven accused, directors of RJ Shah & Company and D Thakkar Constructions, in a case related to alleged scam in the Mokhaburdi Upsa Lift Irrigation scheme.
Anti-Corruption Bureau of Maharashtra police has filed cases against Kalindi Rajendra Shah and Tejaswini Rajendra Shah, both directors of RJ Shah &Company; Vishal Pravin Thakkar, Pravin Nathalal Thakkar, Jigar Pravin Thakkar, Arun Kumar Gupta and Ramesh Kumar Soni.
The ACB filed a 4,500-page charge sheet against the accused last month, after which they moved the court seeking pre-arrest bail.
As per the ACB, private contractors, in connivance with government officials, manipulated the tender process which resulted in a financial loss to the government.
