A special anti-corruption court has rejected the bail plea of former IAS officer and executive chairman of the Metrolink Express for Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad (MEGA), Sanjay Gupta, in connection with an alleged Rs 113 crore scam.
In its order, the court stated that there was sufficient prima facie evidence against Gupta to prove his involvement in the case. The advocate appearing for Gupta immediately demanded the copy of the order so that the high court could be moved.
The court accepted the contentions of the prosecution’s advocate, Sudhir Brahmbhatt, and noted that though Gupta was not named in the FIR, he has been named in the statement recorded by the CID crime. The court also accepted Brahmbhatt’s assertion that it was evident from the statements that Gupta had accepted the amount.
