    GUWAHATI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a fresh FIR against former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, said sources. He was the chief minister of the state from 2011-2016.

    The top agency reportedly filed an FIR against the minister for alleged nepotism and corruption related to a contract for the construction of a Kendriya Vidyalaya school boundary wall in the Salt Lake area of Kolkata.

    The CBI alleged that officials of the Arunachal Pradesh public works department (PWD), had awarded the tender to firms controlled by family members of Tuki, who was the then minister of PWD in the state.
