New Delhi : Former JD(U) MLA from Mokama constituency in Bihar, Anant Singh, has been questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), in connection with allegations of cartelisation and large-scale irregularities in award of contracts at the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) plant at Barh in Bihar.

CBI sources said Singh, MLA from Mokama constituency, was examined in Beur Central Jail in Patna, where he is currently lodged in connection with the alleged kidnapping of builder Raju Singh in November 2014. Singh is also named as accused in several cases of murder and rape. CBI maintained that the questioning was a routine exercise.

The JD(U) MLA, who is currently in jail in a kidnapping case, known for his muscle power and strong arm tactics, is also named as accused in several cases of murder and rape.

The CBI has alleged largescale irregularities in award of contracts to various parties by NTPC for the super thermal power plant at Barh in Patna. A joint surprise check conducted by CBI and NTPC’s Vigilance branch reportedly found there was largescale cartelisation at the time of filing of tenders.

It was alleged that a local group, headed by Singh, indulged in cartelisation and ring formation in award of contracts in NTPC Limited, Barh, thereby not allowing outside parties to function and participate in the tender.
