India: CBI books Sanjay Bhandari, Samsung Engineering for ‘corruption’ in Dahej project

The CBI has booked middleman Sanjay Bhandari along with South Korea-based Samsung Engineering Co. Limited (SECL), unknown officials of ONGC Petro additions Limited (OPaL) and others for entering into an “illegal” consultancy pact to bag a Gujarat-based project worth ₹6,744.32 crore.

Among those named as accused are Santech International FZC in the United Arab Emirates, in which Mr. Bhandari was a director; Foster Wheeler Energy Limited (FWEL)-UK; and Hong NamKoong, then senior manager with SECL.

It is alleged that in October 2007, Santech International had a consultancy agreement with SECL in violation of the conditions of a contract agreement between OPaL and SECL. He received about $50 lakh from SECL through a Dubai bank account of Santech International in June 2009.
