Madhya Pradesh: Officer summoned by CBI in Bofors case found dead under mysterious circumstances

As per reports, the 45-year-old Khatua was summoned by the CBI for an inquiry into the charges of supply of Chinese spare parts for the production of indigenised Bofors guns used by the army.

SC Khatua, a junior works manager (JWM) of the Guns Carriage Factory was reportedly found dead in a drain behind section 2 of the factory area in GCF in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh yesterday. As per reports, Khatua’s body was severely decomposed and a bloodstained blade was also found near his body.

As per reports, the 45-year-old Khatua was summoned by the CBI for an inquiry into the charges of supply of Chinese spare parts for the production of indigenised Bofors guns used by the army.

He was reported missing on January 17. Khatua’s wife had lodged a missing person report on January 18. However, the police have stated that the case looks like that of a suicide.

The Delhi-based firm named Siddhi Sales Syndicate was accused of conspiring with certain GCF by the CBI in July 2017 on allegations of selling fake Chinese parts to the ordinance factory. CBI had also lodged an FIR against unknown officials of the ordinance factory under the MoD. Fake parts made in China were reportedly sold as Made in Germany products and were being fitted into the Dhanush guns used by the army.

They were charged with forgery and cheating. Later in 2017, a team of CBI officials had also visited the GCF in Jabalpur to question involved officials and investigate the case.
