Singh faces two separate CBI cases: one relating to his disproportionate assets and and another relating to high-level corruption in awarding contracts.

The CBI's press officer R K Gaur said Singh was arrested as part of an ongoing investigation of corruption.

The cases were registered upon a directive from the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court to conduct an investigation into allegations of corruption and amassment of unaccounted money by Singh.
