    Sting CD row: CBI to question Uttarakhand CM today

    New Delhi The Central Bureau of Investigation will question Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Tuesday for the second time in connection with a preliminary inquiry into a sting operation to get information on some specific issues on which it said his responses were not satisfactory.

    CBI sources said he has been asked to come tomorrow in connection with the inquiry.

    Sources in the agency had claimed after his first round of question that Rawat could not “furnish full and complete details” on many issues for which he has been called again. Rawat had countered it saying he fully cooperated with CBI.

    The sources, however, failed to elaborate on what specific points Rawat did not furnish details.

    The agency had registered a preliminary enquiry in connection with the alleged sting operation on April 29 purportedly showing Rawat offering bribes to rebel Congress lawmakers to support him during a floor test in the Uttarakhand Assembly. It was registered on the reference received from the state government (during President’s rule) and subsequent notification from BJP-led central government.
