The raid is due to the bribery scandal he is suspected to be involved with the Louis Berger . Goa Police stated that they started at early morning 5 AM and speeded to five different locations out of which 4 are in the Panaji city while 1 is in the Madgaon ( his residence). The raids immediately took place after the local court allowed him for bail though he was accused of taking 1.2 crore INR as corruption / bribe from the United States to help them unofficially in the sewage-water project.

The court had earlier rejected the plea of Mr Digambar Kamat as it observed the allegations origins from the US and apart from it the case doesn’t look like political vendetta. But he was not arrested since the court claimed that the investigating officers had not proved enough to make out an arrest warrant. Yes, the police is trying its best by taking its huge first step by doing the uncertain shocking raids, clearly having the motivation to justify the involvement of kamat in the bribery case. The court also ordered Mohanty not to leave India and a fine of 1 lakh INR. He appeared against the Crime Branch of India for almost 3 hours on Monday. The interrogation was horrible for Digambar Kamat as he is getting deeper and deeper in this case.

Crime Branch also slapped an additional charge of ‘Disappearing the proof files’ and this put him into trap as he undergoes another IPC section and anti-graft law. Digambar Kamat (before Raids) has been interrogated twice for the scandal and is having the deep connection with the unknown US firms.
