Singh, a 1984-batch IAS officer of AGMUT cadre, and his personal assistant Ramesh were produced before Special Judge Anju Bajaj Chandna after expiry of their seven-day police remand and the CBI moved an application requesting the court to send them in judicial custody.
Singh, who was holding the post of Principal Secretary in Department of SC, ST and Minorities, has been suspended by the Delhi government.
CBI had earlier told the court that they would examine the bank lockers of Singh during the police custody and he was also required to be interrogated regarding the property papers
