IAS officer Radheshyam Mopalwar, who was sent on leave following allegations of bribery in August this year, has been reinstated as vice-president and Managing Director of the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC).
An official inquiry committee headed by former Chief Secretary Johnny Joseph is said to have cleared Mopalwar of all the charges as it found that the audio clips, used to implicate the official, may have been tampered with.
Mopalwar was in-charge of Sammruddhi Corridor, a dream project of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, envisaging construction of a super communication highway connecting Mumbai with Nagpur.
After the audio clip surfaced, Mopalwar was sent on leave and the inquiry committee constituted to pacify the Opposition.
Last month, the Anti-Extortion Cell in neighbouring Thane district arrested a private detective and his wife for allegedly extorting Rs 1 crore from Mopalwar.
The couple told the officer that they would leak the recordings of his phone calls if they were not paid Rs 7 crore, police had said.
