New Delhi: Furthering its probe into the cash-for-job scam, the CBI has recorded the statement of Chairman of Railway Board Vinay Mittal in connection with the case allegedly involving former Railway Minister Pawan Bansal's nephew Vijay Singla.

CBI sources said Mittal was questioned on Thursday evening in connection with details of promotions and postings of Board members.

Underlining that Mittal was not questioned as an accused, CBI sources said he was grilled for three hours.

The case relates to alleged bribe payment to Singla by Board member Mahesh Kumar for getting posting of choice.

Pawan Bansal had to resign as Union Railway Minister early this month after his nephew and a few other persons were arrested by CBI in a case involving alleged payment of bribe for fixing a top level Railway Board position.
