New Delhi: CBI today registered a case against JD(U) MLA Anant Singh for alleged cartelisation and ring formation during award of contracts in National Thermal Power Corporation in Barh (Bihar).

The agency today carried out searches at the Patna residence of Singh in connection with the case.

CBI sources said a Patna-based firm -Raj Nandini Projects Private Limited- has also been named in the FIR, in which unknown officials of NTPC Limited are also under probe.

"It was alleged that there were large scale irregularities in award of contracts to various parties by NTPC Limited, Barh Super Thermal Power Plant, Barh, Patna (Bihar). In pursuance to this information, a joint surprise check was conducted by CBI alongwith Vigilance branch of NTPC Limited," CBI spokesperson said here today.
