Mrs Rachna Tiwari, who served as senior civil judge in Tis Hazari Court  (currently suspended) joined Delhi Judicial Service in 2006. In FIR CBI stated that from 2006 to 2016 she possessed a massive amount of assets some in her name and others in her husband nearly worth 3 crores which is disproportionate to the income from the legal sources.

CBI said that the assets of both husband and wife in 10 years grew from 1.5 lakhs to 3.5 crores while their income from the source is 1.05 crores and expenditure of 50 crores. The investigation began when they were arrested in bribery case in 2016.

In 2016 CBI set the trap and arrested the local commissioner for accepting bribes of 1 lakhs rupees on behalf of the judge. Later during the same trap, a bribe of 4 lakhs was recovered from the house of judge’s residence. This led to the recovery of the sum of nearly 95 lakhs in cash and legal instruments related to assets. She tried to hide the actual income of her newly brought house in Rajendra Place, Delhi and to destroy the amount of cash recovered in cash from her house.

When the CBI reached her house to arrest her she made an attempt to escape from the backyard. CBI booked her and her husband in a disproportionate assets case.
