A Delhi court today sent to five-day CBI custody an under secretary in the Union Home Ministry in connection with a case against him of allegedly dishonestly issuing FCRA notices to several NGOs for financial gains. Seeking Joshi’s custody, CBI argued that files relating to several NGOs had gone missing from the Home Ministry and they were recovered from his house and he was not supposed to take them away. It contended that he was neither cooperating in the probe nor disclosing relevant facts and his custodial interrogation was required to find out how those files came to his house. CBI alleged in court that Joshi had been issuing notices dishonestly to a large number of NGOs/ societies registered under the FCRA 2010, which have been receiving significant amount of foreign contributions, in an arbitrary manner.
