Srinagar: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday carried raid at the house of Baseer Ahmad Khan, a week after he was relieved as advisor to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha.

Official sources told that a team of CBI from New Delhi along accompanied by local police carried the raid at the house of Basheer Ahmed Khan, a retired IAS officer, at Bulbul Bagh Baghat. When this report was filed, the raid was going. Further details are awaited.

Baseer Khan, who remained as advisor to Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu and his successor Manoj Sinha from March 2020, was relieved after the CBI top brass reportedly informed the Ministry of Home Affairs, GoI, about his name figuring in the gun license racket.

Subsequently, the MHA relieved Baseer Khan from the post of Advisor. Even the order issued by the government to relieve Khan had mention of MHA.

“Pursuant to communication No. 15030/40/2019-J&K dated 4th October, 2021, of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, Baseer Ahmad Khan (Retired IAS:2000) is hereby relieved from the post of Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor, Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, with immediate effect,” reads the government order issued on October 12. 

Earlier on Monday, the CBI conducted searches at the premises of former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh at multiple locations in connection with the leak of confidential documents related to the preliminary enquiry against him on allegations of corruption, officials said Monday. A team of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials reached the residence of Deshmukh in Nagpur and Mumbai this morning with necessary warrants, they said.
