TV actor Anuj Saxena on Thursday surrendered in a special court after his connection with the graft case involving ex-Corporate Affairs DG B K Bansal and his family who committed suicide last year. Saxena was asked on Monday by the Delhi High Court to surrender before CBI on February 17, as he made himself available before Special Judge Gurdeep Singh today. As per the reports by the PTI, the High Court had on February 13 issued the directive after Saxena’s lawyer decided to withdraw the anticipatory bail plea moved by him, when the court said it was “not inclined to grant relief” as the accused appeared to be the “ultimate beneficiary”.
The Central Bureau of Investigation has alleged that Anuj Saxena – who was the chief operating officer of Elder Pharmaceuticals – played the direct role in bribing Bansal to ensure that he does not order an SFIO inspection against his company on charges of illegal collection of Rs 175 crore from 24,000 investors, diversion of funds to companies abroad and not filing returns on time.
