A Delhi court today dismissed the bail plea of Bar Council of India member Rajendra Singh Rana, arrested by the CBI for allegedly taking bribe for granting affiliation to a law college in Ghaziabad. Special CBI judge O P Saini rejected Rana's bail plea saying that"the probe is at its intial stage".
The CBI had on December 20 arrested Rana along with Manish Tyagi, one of the members of the advisory body of the law college. Rana was allegedly taking bribe of Rs one lakh from Tyagi for giving a favourable inspection report of the college, the agency had said.
The agency had also raided seven places in and around Delhi, including Rana's office and the college premises.
The CBI had said it had been monitoring Rana's telephone calls and had swooped on his Pitampura residence in north Delhi on December 20 evening when another advocate had arrived there with the file of the law college.
At the CBI headquarters, Rana had alleged that the agency was deliberately trying to trap him and that he was discussing the case with his fellow Supreme Court advocate.
