The CBI arrested Prakash in Hyderabad, agency sources in Delhi. Fixed Deposits worth lakhs of rupees besides Rs 186,000 in cash were also seized from his residential and official premises.

In another case, the CBI has accused a commandant of the Railway Protection Force and Telgi of breaching the security at the press.

The central government, which owns the ISP, had in November asked the CBI to ascertain whether some employees were involved in printing and distribution of fake stamps and stamp papers by Telgi.
