Kumar, a 1989-batch IAS officer of AGMUT cadre, was questioned by the CBI for about seven hours late last night after the probe agency sleuths raided his Delhi Secretariat office, triggering a political storm between Delhi government and the Centre.
The CBI said that it has registered a case against Kumar and others on allegations against the officer that he abused his official position by 'favouring a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments'.
The CBI carried out searches at 14 places connected with Kumar in the national capital, including his residence, and various locations in Uttar Pradesh. The agency has claimed to have recovered about Rs 16 lakh, including Rs 2.4 lakh in cash, foreign currency of the value of Rs 3 lakh from the residence of Kumar.
