The CBI has registered five cases against a private company, eight executive engineers and six junior engineers of the Delhi Government for alleged cheating and forgery in the supply of sewage equipment to the Delhi Jal Board.

They were booked on charges of cheating the board by supplying spurious and cheap motor pump, gear boxes, machinery and spare parts used in sewage treatment plants at exorbitant rates, thereby causing crores of rupees loss to the state exchequer.  The accused submitted forged and fake documents showing a Delhi-based firm as the  authorised dealer of a manufacturing firm in Mumbai, sources said.

“These equipment were purchased from a private firm at Kirti Nagar in Delhi at exorbitant rates on the basis of false and forged letter of authorisation. The accused officials of the Delhi Jal Board had issued various work orders to the Delhi firm by showing it as an authorised dealer of Mumbai-based firm,” a CBI spokesperson said in a statement.

It is said that the Delhi Jal Board had awarded a contract for supply of equipment to Mumbai-based company Esenpro. However, the officials of the board entered into a criminal conspiracy with owner of Delhi-based Metro Projects and forged the letters of Esenpro regional manager, declaring the Delhi based company as its authorised supplier.

According to sources, the agency raided 21 office and residential premises of the accused in Delhi, Noida and Ghaziabad and recovered “incriminating documents”.
