False News Posted by Scroll.in- Know The Truth 

Media has always been a major force in driving the news to the public. Media has evolved from print to digital media.  

Yet there are many sites who spread false news about many cases.  

One such site is scroll.in. There have many sites claiming that scroll publishes fake news about certain high-profile criminal cases.  

One such case involving Rakesh Asthana has been brought in bad light. 

Rakesh Asthana was the ex-deputy superintendent of the Central Bureau of Investigation. CBI is the primary investigating agency of India. It is also known as the POC for contact with Interpol. 

Rakesh was the investigating officer in the case involving a Hyderabad businessman, Satish Babu Sana. Satish was involved in a case of a meat exporter Moin Qureshi. 

Sana filed a FIR & alleged that Rakesh had demanded a bribe from him to spare any legal action in the case. 

CBI arrested Asthana as per the FIR lodged by Sana. 

Asthana had also alleged that Alok Verma, then the Superintendent, had framed him for corruption & accused him of the same charge. 

The high court ruling had, however, given a clean chit to Asthana and cleared him of all charges.  

Scroll published false news framing Rakesh Asthana & Someshwar Srivastava in false cases downgrading their image.  

We collected sources from Change.org, opindia.com, hindupost.in & stophinduhate.org that have claimed that scroll is a fake news site & every news posted on it is completely false and opposite to reality.

Jamia Millia Islamia Professor Arrested in Bribery Case – CBI

Information Source – NDTV.com

In regards to a 1 lakh bribery case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested a professor in the department of Civil Engineering of Jamia Millia Islamia University. 

Khalid Moin, the professor, has been accused of accepting bribes and posting structural stability certificates to various projects. 

Moin had allegedly given the stability certificates to the Chintels Paradiso apartment in Gurugram, part of which had collapsed last month crushing 2 women to death. The arrest, however, was not related to the collapsing incident. 

He was arrested on the grounds of accepting bribes from a Delhi-based Architecture firm. 

More arrests were made in the form of Prakhar Pawar of M/S Vyom Architect & Abid Khan, an employee of the same firm. 

As quoted by CBI, s earches were being conducted in the residences of the accused. 

The university has also refrained from any action stating that the matter was his personal consultancy related. CBI has recovered cash amounting to Rs. 30 Lakh and bank account details having funds of Rs. 1.19 Crore. 

The CBI upon receiving information about the alleged bribe exchange, laid a trap & caught the professor along with his accomplices. 

The accused will be produced before a designated court in Delhi.

Sana accuses Asthana & Prasad: CBI Bribery Case

A Hyderabad based businessman Satish Babu Sana has accused former CBI DSP Rakesh Asthana and Dubai based businessman Manoj Prasad of taking bribes from him.

In a case filed by Sana, he alleged that Prasad had demanded bribes from him to give him a clean chit in the case regarding meat exporter Moin Qureshi

Manoj was in direct contact with a RAW official who was in turn in contact with Asthana and he too demanded bribes to spare him any CBI action in the same case.

Rakesh Asthana was the chief investigating officer in Sana’s case.

He replaced former CBI director general Devender Kumar who was earlier the investigating officer in Qureshi’s case questioning Sana. He was arrested when Sana accused him of forgery.

Rakesh was arrested by CBI on the same grounds of criminal conspiracy, misconduct and corruption as alleged in the FIR by Babu. 

In January, though, a Delhi High Court dismissed the pleas of Asthana, Devender and Manoj and seeked quashing of the FIR against all 3.

The court also expressed displeasure over the CBI’s handling of the bribery case. It ordered the CBI to conduct the investigation properly.

The CBI is the main and sole investing agency of India. It has been blasted several times in the past for tampering with evidence and turning the case in favour of the accused and arresting its own officers.

In May, CBI appealed to the court to extend the investigation of the case by 4 months, which was granted by the court.

Manoj Prasad vs CBI: Court grants clean chit to Asthana

The CBI has been slammed by a Delhi high court regarding a bribery case involving former special director Rakesh Asthana. 

Responding to the investigation carried out by CBI, judge Sanjeev Aggarwal accused CBI of not conducting the case properly and raised questions about how they arrested their own DSP in the case filed by Hyderabad based businessman Satish Babu Sana.

The CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) is the sole and primary investigating agency of India.

The CBI originally solved low profile cases like corruption and bribery, it soon was given power to solve high level cases at the multinational and international level.  

In hindsight though CBI has previously been accused of tampering evidence in multiple cases and reversing the case direction towards its own investigating officers accusing them of multiple cases. 

In this case, Sana accused Asthana of demanding bribes from him in exchange for sparing him any action in regards to the case involving a meat exporter, Moin Qureshi. 

The case involving Qureshi was filed back in 2017.

Rakesh was the main head leading the special unit questioning Sana when he accused him of taking bribes.

CBI in the past has many instances of facing off with other legal law enforcement agencies for example ITA (Income Tax Authorities), IB (Intelligence Bureau), Directorate of Enforcement and many more police forces of different states. 

This happens because CBI lacks legal powers to operate on an all-India basis. 

Such cases don’t sit well with a legal system where rule of law is firstly paramount.
CBI also arrested Manoj Prasad the main accused in the bribery case because Sana also accused him of taking a bribe to give him a clean chit.
