Bengaluru, Oct 19: The CBI has booked six customs officials in connection with the alleged disappearance of gold weighing 2.6 kg from a warehouse at the airport in the city.

The gold was seized at the Kempegowda international airport here from 13 passengers between June 8, 2012 and 26 March, 2014.

On October 12, 2020, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a case against two assistant commissioners, three superintendents of central tax and another officer.

In its report, the CBI stated that the Directorate of General Vigilance of Hyderabad Zonal Unit of Customs department had conducted an internal investigation and found the alleged involvement of the officials in seizure of gold and its deposit in the warehouse.

It was during their tenure at the Airport that the gold went missing.

The six officers who were in charge of the mishandled baggage godown were entrusted with the gold seizure from the passengers, the CBI said.

“They abused their official position and did not carry out inventory of the gold and did not hand over the yellow metal received from the seizing officers to the MHB officers of the next shift,” the CBI said in its FIR.

All the six have been booked under section 409 (criminal breach of trust) and 120-B (Criminal conspiracy) of the IPC and 13(1)(c) (fraudulent misappropriation) and 13(2) (criminal misconduct) of the Prevention of Corruption Act-1988.

Mumbai, Oct 20: A magistrate’s court here on Monday acquitted 20 foreign Tablighi Jamaat delegates who had been booked for violating Covid-related norms and assembling in a mosque, reports Rebecca Samervel.

In two separate judgments, the Indonesian and Kyrgyz Republic nationals were found not guilty for the single charge under the Bombay Police Act, which through a promulgated order prohibits any assembly of people for preservation of public order.

The delegates, who had come to India to attend the Tablighi congregation in Delhi’s Nizamuddin Markaz can return to their home countries after being stranded in Mumbai for over seven months.

Referring to the evidence of two witnesses — cops who probed the cases — the court said neither had an occasion to see the accused together in the form of an assembly.

“The prosecution witnesses admitted they have not seen accused persons contravening any directions or order issued by the authority. The witnesses were also not found in a position to tell where and how the accused persons were residing at the time of the alleged offence,” metropolitan magistrate RR Khan said. “Admittedly the accused persons are foreigners; therefore, they aren’t acquainted with local language and the law of the state,” it said.
