CBI arrests two officials in ‘Rail Neer’ case

NewsGram Staff Writer

New Delhi: The CBI on Sunday arrested two Indian Railways officers, Sandeep Silas and MS Chalia, who were under probe for alleged involvement in the Rail Neer racket.

According to a CBI release, Sandeep Silas is a 1984-batch Indian Railway Traffic Service (IRTS) officer.

MS Chalia, the second officer, also came under the scanner of the CBI for the alleged involvement of his son’s company in the scam.

The CBI suspected that the private catering companies could have paid illegal remittances to the officer through the company run by his son for favors shown to them for supplying inferior quality of packaged drinking water on premium trains instead of the mandatory ‘Rail Neer’.

On Friday, CBI registered a case against Chalia, Silas and seven private companies, RK Associates Pvt Ltd, Satyam Caterers Pvt Ltd, Ambuj Hotel and Real Estate, PK Associates Pvt Ltd, Sunsine Pvt Ltd, Brandavan Food Product and Food World, under the provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.
