CBI books its assistant programmer in DA case
CBI has filed a fresh case against its assistant programmer, Ajay Garg, who was arrested last year for selling an illicit software to subvert Tatkal railway tickets reservations and acquiring disproportionate assets worth Rs 96.09 lakh. Garg was posted as assistant programmer in CBI from 2011to 2017 during which time his total assets grew to Rs 1.46 crore. Before CBI, he worked with IRCTC where he learnt the vulnerabilities of the railway ticketing system. The agency has alleged that going by the known sources of his income, assets to the tune of Rs 96.90 lakh could not be explained and were 122% over and above his legitimate income.
