The case, which came to light in the last week of May after the arrest of Mr. Ramachandran's Personal Assistant, R. Perumalswamy, and his Chennai-based Chartered Accountant, A. Krishnamurthy, for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs. 4 lakhs from an Indian Revenue Service Official to get him posted to Mumbai.
Agency sources today said some top officials of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), responsible for the transfer of IRS officers, had been questioned as some documents recovered from the residence of Mr. Krishnamurthy had indicated their involvement in the scam.
The sources said ``some clarifications'' were needed from the former Minister and that he would be either questioned or a questionnaire would be sent to him for replying to the queries of the sleuths.
Mr. Ramachandran, who had to resign after the scam came to light, has already denied any involvement.
