Raipur (22.04.2024): The ED Sunday arrested retired IAS officer Anil Tuteja in connection with a second Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR). He is being accused of “architect” of Chhattisgarh liquor scam. Tuteja was produced before a court in Raipur and was remanded in 1-day judicial custody although the ED prayed for 14 days custody before the magistrate. He will be produced before a special PMLA court in Raipur again today.
According to the ED, the scam has cost the state exchequer Rs 2,161 crore, which has been pocketed by the accused including politicians. Based on an FIR in January 17 this year by Chhattisgarh’s Economic Offences Wing and Anti-Corruption Bureau, a second ECIR was registered by ED on April 11 this year, three days after the Supreme Court on April 8 quashed their first ECIR in the same scam. An FIR was registered on a complaint by the ED, naming 70 accused, including former excise minister and MLA Kawasi Lakhma and Anwar Dhebar, brother of Raipur Mayor Aijaz Dhebar of the Congress.
