FCI scam: CBI court sentences 2 contractors to 3 years in jail

Muzaffarnagar (UP), Nov 30  A special CBI court in Ghaziabad has sentenced two contractors to three years in jail for cheating the Food Corporation of India (FCI) of about Rs 6 lakh 33 years ago, CBI counsel Naeem Rasa said.

CBI court magistrate Anil Kumar also slapped fine on the convicts yesterday.

According to the CBI counsel, the two contractors, in connivance with the then FCI manager in Muzaffarnagar, inflated bills of grain purchase, causing a loss of about Rs 6 lakh to the corporation in 1984.

The FCI manager died during the course of the trial.

The two contractors surrendered before police in 1992.

In 1993, the CBI filed the charge sheet in the case, the counsel said.
