POONCH TODAY NEWS
JAMMU: A KAS officer having good links in high administrative set up and remained posted in and around Jammu district mostly, has amassed huge wealth disproportionate to his known source of income. The said officer scripted various financial frauds during his successive postings to head various blocks in and around Jammu district. During his previous posting in a nearby district of Jammu, he along with his immediate boss who is now working at a very important position in government, managed to indulge in dubious tricks and violated transparency in many works. The other day, Executive Engineer REW Samba unearthed a major scam of NREGA and related works in Samba worth several crores. The said X.En admitted in written letter that from 01-04-2019 to 04-10-2019 not a single work was executed on the ground by the tainted officials which includes BDO’s, who managed to withdrew money in several crores. What X.En REW Samba detected was just a tip of an iceberg as huge financial frauds were carried out in Samba district over the years and the said tainted officer played a similar role. The said officer gave full shelter to his subordinates to indulge in financial wrong doings by getting huge share. Already a favourite officer of his boss, the said officer also started interfering in other government works of helping his favourite junior KAS officers for getting prize postings by ensuring deals with those holding important positions at the helm of affairs. With the help of a former BJP minister, he has been managing his choicest posting. Having a luxurious property in a very important area of Jammu, the said officer has managed everything behind the curtains and tried his best to project himself as an efficient officer of administration. But after coming under the watchful eye of Anti corruption bureau and other anti graft agencies, the said officer managed his posting out of Jammu district, that too on a “Malaidaar” posting, fearing strong action in Jammu. The officer tried his best to hide his various questionable financial activities, but has failed to do so successfully, because few of his questionable activities have started to come in public domain through various sources. His few financial frauds during successive postings in and around Jammu district are already under investigation and likely to be taken to task by anti graft agencies.
