New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested its four officers for allegedly conducting a fake raid on an IT firm there to extort money, officials said on Thursday. These four accused officers had allegedly gone to Chandigarh on Wednesday to conduct a ”search” even when they were not posted there and had no case or mandate for such an operation, they said.


The employees of the firm smelled a rat in the conduct of the officers, rounded them up and called police, the officials here said.

Senior CBI officials said as part of the agency’s zero-tolerance towards corruption policy, strictest possible action will be initiated against the accused officials.
