Oil scam: 5 IOC employees held

The CBI has arrested five employees of the Indian Oil Corporation's (IOC) Sanganer depot in connection with a oil scam. During interrogation
of a HPCL's depot manager, Arun Kumar Suman, and driver Rajendra Singh, it was revealed that one of the IOC employees, arrested on Saturday, alone had sold 2.20 lakh litre diesel to Arun Kumar who later sold it at a rate of Rs 2.50 lakh per 20,000 litre diesel to the tanker drivers.

The drivers had then sold it to some big transporters and dealers in Ajmer, Bharatpur and Tonk districts. Next in the line of fire are some senior IOC officers in Jaipur, tanker drivers and transporters who may soon be arrested by the CBI.

According to CBI officials, the accused have been identified as Lekhraj Singh (operation officer), Shiv Kumar Sharma (operation officer), Shambhu Dayal (charge man), Allauddin Qureshi (junior charge man) and Vinod Kumar (senior foreman). "All of them are deputed at the IOC's Sanganer depot," said a CBI official.

The five accused were produced in court on Saturday and sent to five-day police remand. "During interrogation, one of the accused, Lekhraj Singh, has confessed to having sold 2.20 lakh litre of diesel to Arun Kumar. The diesel was stolen from the IOC pipeline which runs between Kandla and Bhatinda," said an officer.

"Arun Kumar had sold the diesel to some tanker drivers at huge profits. We are searching for transporters and dealers who bought diesel " the officer added.

The CBI had, on Tuesday, arrested Arun Kumar and a tanker driver Rajendra Singh in case of embezzlement in which the CBI team found 1.28 litres of petrol and 4,000 litres of diesel missing from the HPCL's Sitapura industrial area depot.
