CBI to probe fake railway courts

Express news service  Tue Aug 30 2011,  Mumbai:

Taking serious note of a scam involving the alleged staging of fake courts by Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel to extort money from commuters who cross railway tracks, the Bombay High Court on Monday transferred the investigation in the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The Division Bench of Justice Ranjana Desai and Justice Ranjit More ordered the transfer after the agency told the court that it is already investigating the role of RPF personnel in corruption cases. “Since the CBI is already investigating such cases against RPF officials, it would be the best agency to probe this matter,” Justice Desai said.

Earlier, the court had said it was considering transferring the case to the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID), observing that there is a possibility of a pattern existing throughout the state. However, in a hearing on August 26, the judges sought to know if the CBI is investigating any case related to the fake court scam
