CBI files charge sheet against 2 commanders, 4 officers of Indian Navy

The CBI found the officers of the Indian Navy, arrested recently, leaking sensitive submarine information in return for pecuniary gains


The CBI on 2 November filed its first charge sheet in the case pertaining to the arrest of Indian officers handling a sensitive submarine retro-fitting for allegedly leaking confidential information in return for pecuniary gains, officials said.

In its charge sheet filed before special CBI judge in Rouse Avenue court, the CBI booked six persons including two serving commanders — one of them named Ajeet Kumar Pandey, a commodore-ranked retired officer Randeep Singh, another commander-ranked retired officer SJ Singh working for a Korean submarine company, a director of a private company, and an alleged hawala operator.

The CBI had arrested two retired officers and during searches, the agency recovered Rs 2 crore from the residence of one of them.

The agency has booked the six individuals for charges of criminal conspiracy under the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Corruption Act, they said.

It is alleged that the serving naval officers were allegedly leaking confidential information to the retired officers in return for pecuniary gains. After getting the information, the CBI had carried out a raid in September in which the two retired officers were arrested, the officials said.

Sources said further probe is continuing and the role of some foreign nationals is under the scanner. The anti-corruption unit of the CBI, which handles sensitive and high profile corruption cases, was tasked with unearthing the leakage of information, following which the operation was launched, they said.

The unit has questioned several other officers and ex-servicemen who were in regular touch with the arrested officers and retired personnel, they said.

The CBI is conducting a forensic analysis of digital products used by the officers to understand if the information had fallen into the hands of people with vested interests, they said.

“Investigation related to alleged information leak of administrative and commercial nature being with some unauthorised has come to light and is being investigated by an appropriate government agency,” the said in a statement. The CBI investigation is going on with complete support of the Indian Navy, it said. An internal inquiry by the navy is also in progress, it said.
