KOCHI: The CBI raids at various locations across the city on Saturday continued as part of the probe into graft in the sale of scrap from Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) . The office and warehouse of South Indian Scrap Traders in Vennala was raided in this connection. However, CBI officers said it could not unearth crucial evidence or documents pertaining to the case from the office.
The raid was conducted by a team headed by CBI DySP Devarajan. The CBI is probing the involvement of more persons in the case. “ There will be involvement of more persons in the case against CSL Assitant General Manager N Ajith Kumar since he alone could not have sold off the entire scrap from the shipyard. More officers in CSL knew about the deal. If there is sufficient evidence, we will arraign them as accused later,” a CBI officer said.
