New Delhi :

A Delhi court on Wednesday granted bail to Rajya Sabha MP Anil Kumar Sahani and three others in connection with allegedly using fake bills for leave travel concession claims.  

CBI had filed a charge sheet against Anil Kumar Sahani, a JD(U) MP from Bihar, and three others in the alleged LTC scam that broke out in 2013 with the probe agency claiming they had caused a loss of Rs 23.71 lakh to the exchequer.

Sahani had denied the charges against him in connection with the scam that had rocked Rajya Sabha, alleging that this is yet another blatant attempt by the Centre to misuse CBI by filing a "bogus charge sheet" against the MP.

Besides Sahani, whose term in Rajya Sabha ends in April 2018, others named in the CBI charge sheet were Anup Singh Panwar, an employee of Delhi-based Air Cruise Travels Private Limited, N S Nair, then Office Superintendent (Traffic), Air India and Arvind Tiwari, a private person.
