The Commissioner of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), Peter Lim, 51, has been suspended from work since last month.
Chinese Daily Lianhe Wanbao reported today that he, Central Narcotic Bureau (CNB) Chief Ng Boon Gay and six other SCDF officials are under investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB).
Two SCDF officials who hold senior ranks are amongst the six under investigation.
Quoting reliable sources, the paper stated that the case is linked to money and women.
There are no further details on when Mr Ng, who has been in the police force for 20 years, was called in for questioning by the CPIB.
The report added that Mr Lim's use of the official SCDF car has suspended too.
According to a national broadcaster, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that both Mr Lim and Mr Ng are on leave for now.
MHA is due to issue a statement tomorrow.
Mr Lim became the SCDF Commissioner in May 2009 and has been in the SCDF for 24 years.
Local government merit scholar, Mr Ng Boon Gay, 45, was previously in the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) before heading CNB in January last year.
