Tripura police said they are taking steps to arrest former state chief secretary Y.P. Singh in connection with the multi-crore PWD scam in which former PWD minister Badal Choudhury and former PWD Chief Engineer Sunil Bhowmik have already been arrested.
A senior police official said the Crime Branch has undertaken necessary legal steps to arrest Y.P. Singh, who was principal secretary in-charge of the Public Works Department in 2008-09, from his Delhi residence.
“A team of Crime Branch officials will go to Delhi soon to arrest Singh,” said a senior police official refusing to be identified.
The Crime Branch has arrested Badal Choudhury and Sunil Bhowmik alleging “huge extra payments for execution of 13 developmental projects.” However, both are now admitted in hospitals.
Choudhury, whom the police had been searching for frantically since October 16 in the alleged scam, was found at a private hospital late on Monday night
