The CBI has filed a closure report in connection with the disproportionate assets case of Dental Council of India former chairman Anil Kohli. While filing a closure the agency said that the “allegations could not be substantiated”. In September 2011, Kohli was accused by the CBI of allegedly amassing wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income.
The CBI, which had registered a regular case against him after conducting a preliminary probe, said that Kohli could account for all his assets and those explanations were satisfactory, prompting it to file a closure report. They said no criminality was found on the part of Kohli.
After registering the case, the CBI had carried out searches at six places, the agency’s spokesperson said. The agency was probing Kohli’s role as DCI chairman between 2006 and 2010 following allegations that he received favours from dental colleges for verification and cancellation of certain institutes. He had resigned from the post in 2010. During the searches, it was found that Kohli had allegedly made huge investments in properties, including a house and four shops in South Delhi and a farmhouse near South-West Delhi, the CBI had said, claiming that it had recovered Rs 1 crore in cash during the searches, and documents showing that he had purchased a house worth Rs 82 lakh in South Delhi.
