The CBI has sought the permission of the government to prosecute IAS officer Parimal Rai, former chairman of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), in connection with allegations of graft.

Rai, who was the chief of NDMC from 2007 to 2011, was involved in acts of alleged irregularities in contracts for the upgradation of Shivaji Stadium in the run up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games. There was a massive cost escalation which led to private firms making undue profits and leaving the NDMC in a loss.

The investigating agency has finished its probe and will soon file a chargesheet. But for that the agency would need the permission of the Centre.

In addition to Rai, the CBI has probed the role of P K Gulati and R S Thakur, the then executive engineer and superintendent of the NDMC.
