The arrests were made on Saturday evening.

The accused individuals were allegedly receiving bribes in connection with the Jhansi-Khajuraho Project, which was awarded to PNC Infratech by the NHAI. The bribes were related to the final handover of the project, the issuance of a no objection certificate, and the processing of the final bill. The CBI had filed an FIR against 10 suspects, including the seven arrested individuals.

It is alleged that Yogesh Jain and T R Rao, directors of PNC Infratech Limited, were paying bribes to NHAI officials to obtain favorable treatment. The CBI received information about these alleged bribes, which led to the arrests.
