Is Dixit trying for anticipatory bail?

14 Feb 2010-JAIPUR: Sensing possibility of arrest in the passport verification case, the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) secretary and senior IAS officer Sanjay Dixit is reportedly trying for an anticipatory bail.
He did not turn up at RCA on Saturday despite the fact that he was scheduled to be there around 3.30 pm. It gave rise to speculations that he might be making efforts for lobbying in political and bureaucratic circles. A few close aides of Dixit confirmed that the latter might also try for an anticipatory bail.
The CBI is also closing in on Dixit. Sources claimed that two days after the CBI raided five locations belonging to Dixit and history-sheeter Ranjeet Singh Panwar, the agency is in contact with chief secretary of Rajasthan,
department of personnel, ministry of external affairs and Jaipur SP (south) and collecting documents from them.
They also claimed that action might follow after the documents reach the CBI. The documents could not be collected due to holidays since Friday. They added that some strict action against Dixit might follow in a couple of days. “Documents have been sought from four places and CBI team from Jaipur has gone to Delhi to collect them from ministry of home affairs (MHA) also,” said a source.
“We are investigating the matter,” said SP (CBI) R S Kalia. He also refused to share information regarding documents which according to CBI proved a nexus between Panwar and Dixit.
Meanwhile, some of Dixit’s aides claimed that he had written a letter to the Jaipur passport office in October, 2008 stating that verification certificate issued to Panwar should be cancelled on the grounds that he had issued it by mistake. They also claimed that Ranjeet at that time was manager of kabbadi team which was to visit China and Dixit had issued the certificate in good faith.
The raids were conducted following a high court order that was passed a fortnight ago in a passport verification case. Dixit had allegedly ensured a passport for Singh under the tatkal scheme by issuing him a verification certificate despite the fact that the latter had many criminal cases pending against him.
