Leave Travel Concession case: Sahani moves application in CBI court

New Delhi [India], Apr. 13 (ANI): One of the accused in the Leave Travel Concession case against Rajya Sabha member Anil Kumar Sahani, today moved an application in a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court seeking to become an approver in the case.

An employee of Delhi-based Air Cruise Travels Private Limited Anup Singh Panwar moved an application before CBI special judge Virender Kumar Goyal seeking to become an approver in the case.

The court has directed the probe agency to file a reply on Panwar's plea and listed the matter for April 26 for further hearing.

A Delhi Court yesterday granted bail to Sahani and other two accused in connection with allegedly using fake bills to avail leave travel concession.

The court also asked the accused to furnish Rs. one lakh personal bond and Rs. one lakh surety like amount.

The CBI earlier alleged that in 2012, Sahani entered into a criminal conspiracy with Air Cruise Travels Private Limited and others aiming to cheat the government by claiming fake reimbursement of expenditure.

The CBI said that Sahani, in collusion with others, used forged e-tickets and fake boarding passes and claimed reimbursement to the tune of Rs. 14 lakh as Travelling Allowance and Daily Allowance (TA/DA) without undertaking the actual journey. (ANI)
