New Delhi: No document marked secret or confidential was found in the possession of the executives of Reliance Group and Essar in connection with the petroleum ministry papers leak case, Delhi Police said in the charges filed with a city court here.

A court accepted the charge sheet Monday that accuses 13 people in the case under various offences like cheating, forgery, trespass, theft, common intent and criminal conspiracy. The list includes Reliance Group's Rishi Anand and Subhash Chandra, and Essar's Vinay Kumar.

In the charges, police said that they recovered four sets of documents from Anand and Kumar and six sets of documents from Chandra.

"However, no documents was marked as secret/confidential," police said in the charge sheet, adding the three were possessing documents which they were not only unauthorised to do, but were also vital, sensitive and incriminating.

Police said they did not recover any documents from Virender Kumar, who was a casual worker in the defence ministry, but accused him for making fake identity cards as part of an alleged conspiracy to steal documents.

Other accused are Shailesh Saxena of Reliance Industries, K.K. Nayak of Cairns India, Santanu Saikia who runs a web portal, Melbourne-based consultant Prayas Jain, city-based Lalta Prasad and Rakesh Kumar, Ghaziabad resident Rajkumar Chaubey, and government employees Asharam and Ishwar Singh.

The provisions of the stringent Official Secrets Act have not been invoked against the accused. Police have cited 42 prosecution witnesses in their 44-page charge sheet filed on Saturday.
