The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday raided 10 locations in Delhi and two in Rajasthan in connection with corruption cases in Jammu and Kashmir.

The places searched in the national capital included properties of ex-governor Satyapal Malik’s former press secretary in Defence Colony and West End.

Sources said that all searches were in connection with Kiru Hydro Electric Power Project. Agency sources, earlier in the day, told News18 that press secretary Sunak Bali is the main suspect in the two corruption cases that CBI has registered.

All the places that were raided are connected to Malik’s present and former aides, sources added. One of the cases pertain to allegations of irregularities in an insurance scheme. It was registered after Malik made allegations of attempts to bribe him in the matter.

In October 2021, Malik had claimed that he was offered Rs 300 crore in bribes to clear two files including one related to an RSS leader.

In April last year, the CBI lodged two FIRs over corruption allegations levelled by Malik in the awarding of contracts for a group medical insurance scheme for government employees and civil work worth Rs 2,200 crore related to the Kiru hydroelectric power project in Jammu and Kashmir. The CBI had also conducted searches at 14 locations in April 2022.
