The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday filed a charge sheet against sacked Assam Education Minister Ripun Bora, arrested along with two others for allegedly offering a bribe of Rs 17 lakh to an agency official to "negotiate" the outcome of a murder case.

According to information, the charge sheet was filed against Bora, journalist Mukul Pathak and businessman Ramesh Maheswari before the special judge under section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and section 12 of Prevention of Corruption Act.

The sacked minister was arrested when he was allegedly trying to bribe a CBI official, probing the murder of student leader and his political rival Daniel Toppo.
He was arrested on June three from Sundar Nagar on Mathura Road in south Delhi when he was allegedly offering the bribe to the official. Pathak, a journalist with a Guwahati- based Assamese daily, and Maheswari, both of whom were accompanying Bora, were also arrested by the CBI.
