AGARTALA, Oct 23 - The Tripura Police today said it was taking steps to arrest former State Chief Secretary YP Singh in connection with the multi-crore-rupee PWD scam in which former PWD Minister Badal Choudhury and former PWD Chief Engineer Sunil Bhowmik have already been arrested.
A senior police official said the Crime Branch has taken necessary steps to arrest Singh, who was the Principal Secretary in charge of the PWD in 2008-09, from his Delhi residence.
�A team of Crime Branch officials will go to Delhi soon to arrest Singh,� said a senior police officer, refusing to be identified.
The Crime Branch has arrested Badal Choudhury and Sunil Bhowmik, alleging �huge extra payments for execution of 13 developmental projects�. However, both are now admitted to hospitals.
Choudhury, whom the police had been searching for frantically since October 16 in the alleged scam, was found at a private hospital late on Monday night. His bail petition is likely to come up for hearing in the Tripura High Court tomorrow. � IANS
