NEW DELHI: The CBI on Wednesday registered a case against unknown officials of  Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and its unit Special Frontier Force (SFF) as well as three directors of Sai Baba Builders for alleged irregularities in the procurement of pre-fabricated shelters for use by the SFF in high-altitude areas.

According to the premier investigation agency, the procurement was made by the SFF during 2009-13, which had resulted in undue gains of ` 22 crore to the suppliers. And the arraigned directors of Sai Baba Builders were identified as Shyam Sunder Bhatter, Manjari (wife of former defence contractor Shambhu Prasad Singh) and J P N Singh.

“It has been alleged that wrongful favour was shown by the officials of the SFF and Cabinet Secretariat (RAW) in the matter of the preparation of tender, procurement, supply and installation of the pre-fabricated shelters for SFF troops during 2009-13 which were purchased from the company,” A CBI spokesperson said adding that searches were conducted on Wednesday at four locations in NCR and Kolkata.
