CBI Quizzes Former J&K Governor Satyapal Malik For 5 Hours In Rs 300 Cr Bribery Case

New Delhi: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officers questioned former J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik for more than five hours today in relation to his assertion that he was offered Rs 300 crore as a bribe to clear two files during his tenure as governor of J&K between August 23, 2018, and October 30, 2019. His answers to the agency’s inquiries will be evaluated, and the organisation will determine the next step after that.

“The CBI has requested that I come before them in order to clarify a few matters pertaining to the case. They have orally invited me to arrive on April 27 or 28, depending on how I feel,” Malik said.

He recently alleged that BJP and RSS leader Ram Madhav had paid him to pass a programme. Ram Madhav declared the accusations to be untrue and sued Malik for defamation.

The CBI filed two FIRs in April of last year in connection with Malik’s claims of corruption in the awarding of contracts for a group medical insurance program for public employees and civil work totalling Rs 2,200 crore relating to the Kiru hydroelectric power project in the former state.
