A senior CBI official said that incriminating documents recovered during searches are being scrutinized.
CBI has registered a case against its sub-inspector posted in New Delhi and unknown officials/private persons on a complaint.
The Complainant who is running a partnership firm in Chandigarh had alleged that on Tuesday, six persons including CBI officials entered his office and threatened him that he would be arrested for supporting and providing money to terrorists as they have information regarding the same.
