The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a case against three individuals, including two former Superintendents and one Inspector of Customs stationed at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), Hyderabad, on charges of conspiracy and corruption.

The case, registered on June 28, involves allegations from March 16, when CISF personnel at RGIA, Hyderabad intercepted two private individuals from two companies, including a loader.
