CBI searches 9 locations including premises of Ex-Guv satyapal malik’s aide in J&K Insurance Case

CBI raids are underway at nine locations in Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan, including properties linked to former J&K governor Satyapal Malik’s press secretary. The searches are in connection with corruption charges against Malik.
Agency sources said that press secretary Sunak Bali is the main suspect in two corruption cases that CBI has registered. All the places that are being raided are connected to Malik’s present and former aides, sources added.
One of the case pertains 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.
