“So far, we have arrested five people in a corruption case related to mines. Ashok Singhvi, Rajasthan’s principal secretary for mines and petroleum, has been detained. A search is going on in his premises and eventually he is also likely to be arrested,” ACB Inspector General Dinesh MN said.

Earlier in the day, the ACB arrested five people from Udaipur and Bhilwara districts, including two officials of the mines department, for taking bribe of Rs.2.55 crore for re-starting six mines closed by the department due to various reasons.

The arrested people were Pankaj Gehlot, additional director for mines in Udaipur, Pushkar Raj Amte, senior mining engineer in Bhilwara district, and middlemen Sanjay Sethi, Rashid Khan and Shyam Singh Singhvi.
