NEW DELHI: CBI today carried out searches in the courtrooms of three Metropolitan Magistrates at the Karkardooma Court here and detected "substantial" financial irregularities committed by them while dealing with traffic challan matters.

Acting on a complaint received by District Judge S.N. Dhingra that large-scale irregularities were allegedly taking place in the courts handling challan matters, CBI sleuths searched the courtrooms of A.K. Sharma, S.P. Jain and S.R. Nautiyal, all of them officiating as Special Metropolitan Magistrates.

CBI sources said in a surprise search and after questioning, one of the touts admitted the nexus with court officials. They said it was detected that instead of challan money going to the exchequer, it was allegedly pocketed by the court officials and other people involved in the illegal act.

Elaborating the modus operandi, agency sources said it was disclosed that in the cases where the challan was of Rs 2000, the court officials use to show Rs 50 as compounding amount and the rest was pocketed by them. Meanwhile, CBI is preparing the search memo after which follow up action will be taken, the sources said. The search operation was carried out in presence of Administrative-in-charge of Karkardooma Court Complex Kamini Lau, Additional Sessions Judge S.C. Malik, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Kumar and Metropolitan Magistrate Ruby Alka Gupta. -- PTI
