New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday arrested two officials in connection with journalist Upendra Rai’s money laundering case, related to alleged extortion and dubious financial transactions.

Out of the two arrested people, one is from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and other is Chairman & Managing Director of Air One Aviation Pvt Ltd.

Rai was arrested earlier this month under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), soon after a Delhi court granted him bail in another case registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

A special CBI court had granted bail to Rai, accused of being involved in dubious financial transactions and holding an airport security pass, issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), by furnishing false information.

Rai, whose name figures in two FIRs filed by the CBI, was arrested on May 3. (ANI)
