PUNE: The Central Bureau of Investigation has detected an alleged scam of about Rs 27 lakh involving the Pune Railway Division regarding purchase of railway equipment.

The investigative agency has arrested Senior Divisional Engineer of Pune Railway Division Satyajit Das (59) and four others for fraud in the purchase of railway track clips.

All five of them were produced in the special CBI court of DM Deshmukh on Tuesday, which sent them to police custody up to July 21.

The other four have been identified as a purchase broker Indrajit Singh (42), Raipur-based Manish Forging Company's Director Rajesh Kumar Shah (39), junior accountant of the company Manas Ranjan Pradhan (29) and company's manager Ishwari Prasad Singh (48).

CBI was tipped off about the ongoing irregularities in the purchase of the railway track clips and accordingly, they had investigated the matter.

During its investigation, CBI found out that around 1,000 clip bags, each containing 50 iron clips, were assigned for the Pune railway division.

CBI informed the court that although 500 bags reached Pune, payment was made for 1,000 bags to Manish Forging Company.

The broker, Indrajit Singh, was the link between the company and the railway officials.

The CBI probe revealed that 500 bags were unloaded in Nagpur by Singh.

Public prosecutor Vivek Saxena demanded police custody for all the five  accused since the CBI has to trace the material and trace it and find out whether any other railway officials of the division are involved in the case or not.
