CBI unravels railway freight racket: Marble powder disguised as alum - BusinessLine

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a case against an Assam-based private company for allegedly causing losses of over ₹5 crore to Indian Railways. The company is accused of transporting marble powder disguised as alum powder. The CBI found that the company's proprietor, Pravesh Kabra, entered into a criminal conspiracy with railway officials to misdeclare the powder. If charged as marble chips, the transportation attracted lower freight charges, causing a loss to the Railways. In another case, an absconding economic offender was brought back to India from the US by Interpol to face trial in a bank fraud case in Bengaluru.
