Both R S Kaushik and his predecessor G K Nanda were arrested on Saturday as they were allegedly evasive during their questioning, and will be produced before a court on Sunday. The agency also claimed that the duo had been intimidating some of the officers whom the CBI had been calling for questioning in the case.

With these fresh arrests, the number of people nabbed by the CBI has gone up to six. Besides Kumar, Deputy Secretary in Kejriwal’s office Tarun Sharma, and two owners of Endeavour Systems Private Limited, Sandeep Kumar and Dinesh Gupta, have already been arrested. On Friday, the CBI had carried out raids at six places, including two at Delhi government offices.
