Tamil Nadu: CBI books retired railway officer, son in DA case | Chennai News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials have registered a case against a retired railway official and his son, a government doctor, for amassing assets disproportionate to known sources of income.
This is the second case registered by the CBI against D Sarangapani of Mayiladuthurai after he was first booked in September last year for causing a loss of Rs 64 crore to the Southern Railway.
CBI sources said that the investigation in the first case unearthed disproportionate assets in the name of Sarangapani and his family members.
Sarangapani, who retired as deputy chief engineer from the railways, and his son Dr Balaji acquired assets worth Rs 1.88 crore, which is 241% more than their known sources of income and expenditure in the period between 2013 and 2016.
The FIR states that during the check period, Sarangapani acquired properties in his own name and that of his family members. The CBI said that this prima facie constitutes an offense punishable under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
