The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested former New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) chief engineer Yadav Singh on Monday in a two-year-old corruption case for allegedly awarding projects worth Rs 116.39 crore to private companies during his tenure, in return of regular bribes from them, officials said.

The agency had registered the case on January 17, 2018, on the allegations of criminal conspiracy and misuse of official position as well as accepting bribe regularly by Yadav Singh from the accused contractors and firms while awarding contracts.

"It was also alleged that the then chief maintenance engineer (CME) in conspiracy with other officers/officials of the Noida as well as with the said contractors had awarded several contracts worth Rs 116.39 crore (approx.) to the five firms in gross violation of tender norms and procedures of the Noida," the CBI said.

Yadav Singh, who was facing two corruption cases, had got the bail from the Supreme Court on October last year.

The agency had arrested him in a third corruption case registered in January 2018 in which he was booked along with Javed Ahmed, the owner of Gul Engineers Co, Sai Raju, Manish Kumar and Prem Pradeep, all the directors of SMP Technology Pvt Ltd, Kumar Saurav and Prem Pradeep, both directors of Abu Infracon Pvt Ltd.

The CBI had also named Sanjay Kumar Gupta of Sanjay Electricals and Sanjay Kumar Sharma of Shakambari Projects in Ranchi as accused in the case.
