Yusuf Acar has got our attention because he was a D.C. government worker and worked for the men whom the President Obama chose to be the nation's first Chief Technology Officer.

Now FOX News reports the arrests of Yusuf Acar, as well as Sushil Bansal, who worked for the Advanced Integrated Technologies Corporation (AITC), which is an end-to-end Technology and Business Process Outsourcing Services company, serving the Government and Commercial sectors in the global market through multiple onshore and offshore centers, based out of USA and India.

According to Fox News FBI spokeswoman Lindsay Gotwin would not describe the nature of the probe in the case of Yusuf Acr. "It's an ongoing law enforcement investigation," she said.

FBI is not revealing the nature of the allegations that led to Yusuf Acar's arrest, who is 40. Acar was taken into custody this morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest Washington. However, Washington Post's source said Yusuf "Acar solicited and accepted bribes from Bansal and awarded contracts to his company. Bansal's company also charged, with Acar's knowledge, the District for "ghost employees," who did no work, the source said."

AITC had announced last year that the Association of Indians in America (Washington DC Chapter) selected Mr. Sushil Bansal for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award. The award ceremony was held on August 10, 2008 in Rockville, Maryland. Mr. Bansal was selected for this award for his outstanding contribution in the field of information technology and to the growth of AITC. Mr. Bansal is founder and CEO of AITC.

Washpost story reveals that Yusuf Acar has worked for the city "since 2004 and earns $127,468. He worked for Vivek Kundra, the city's chief technology officer, who recently left D.C. government to become President Obama's federal chief information officer. Kundra is not suspected of any wrongdoing, the source said."
