CBI arrests BCAS official and a private person in Upendra Rai probe  2 Months ago

NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested an assistant director of Bureau of Civil Aviation Security – Rahul Rathore, and the Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Air One Aviation Company – Alok Sharma – for allegedly facilitating the issuance of airport access pass illegally to journalist Upendra Rai.

Both were taken into custody late last night in the case registered in May this year against Rai and chief security officer of the private company Air One - Prasun Roy.

It is alleged that Sharma and Rathore were part of conspiracy to cheat the BCAS and the Delhi International Airport (DIAL) and had fraudulently arranged a temporary and later a permanent Aerodrome Entry Pass (AEP) for Rai.

By getting the right to access all airports in the country, Rai jeopardised national security, the agency had said after filing of an FIR in May this year.

The CBI has alleged that Rai in connivance with Roy applied falsely showing himself as the director of quality control of the company to get the AEP.

The company allegedly sponsored the name of Rai and forwarded the application to the BCAS, which “as a party to the criminal conspiracy” issued a permanent AEP in favour of Rai.

The AEP authorised him to access airports in violation of the laid down Air Operator Certification Guidelines and Civil Aviation Requirements, the CBI had said.

It said Rai was not technically qualified and his name was not approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation for the post of the director general of quality control of Air One.

Rai was arrested by the CBI on May 3 for allegedly indulging in dubious financial transactions and getting an airport access pass made by the BCAS by furnishing false information.
