NEW DELHI: A CBI court on Monday framed charges against four Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) officials, two others and a private company in connection with the CWG street lighting scam. Special CBI Judge Pradeep Chaddha framed charges against four MCD officials -- superintendent engineer D K Sugan, executive Engineer O P Mahala, accountant Raju V and civic body’s tender clerk Gurcharan Singh --for criminal conspiracy, cheating and forgery, and under other sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA).
The court also framed charges against J P Singh and T P Singh, director and managing director respectively of Sweska Powertech Engineers Pvt Ltd, which was allegedly favoured in the award of street lighting contract during the Games in 2010. The court, while putting the firm on trial, said it had fraudulently used forged documents to get the contract for upgrading the street lighting system here.
Another accused Mehul Karnik, an employee of Philips India Pvt Ltd, was, however, discharged from the case last month. The trial will commence on April 3.
