The ACB Team on Wednesday arrested Additional Director of Mining Pankaj Gehlot and two of his associates from their houses with huge amount of cash, sources said.

During the interrogation of the arrested associates Shyam S. Singhvi and Sanjay Sethi, marble businessman of the city, they revealed that the huge amount of cash was allegedly taken by them on behalf of Gehlot from another businessman of Chittor, sources said.

They also alleged that the cash was demanded by Gehlot against providing the environment clearance certificate to the Chittorgarh’s businessman so that he could reopen his 6 mines that were shut since few months.

Sources further added that the deal was finalized in Rs. 22 Cr where the businessman had already paid the first installment to the officer. But when he sent a man to pay another installment on Wednesday, the ACB teams from Jaipur and Udaipur raided the house of the accused, based on tip off and found cash with few documents at their houses situated at New Adarsh Nagar, Bhopalpura, Sector 14 and Pancharatna Complex.
