Highly placed sources within PWD department in Rajouri division, pleading anonymity, told “POONCH TODAY” that the same JE was involved in scripting many frauds from various high profile works and looted government money like anything on fake withdrawals. Although, many attempts were made to transfer the said JE, but behind the curtains, he managed everything, even up to the office of Chief Engineer PWD was managed. Sources also said that Chief Engineer’s office has protected those tainted JEs and AEEs who preferred to remain hand in glove with the office of Chief Engineer and as a result, many tainted JEs and AEEs enjoyed choicest posting and majority of them still are overstayed, thereby scripting major frauds, both in Rajouri and Nowshera divisions. Even in Nowshera division, a powerful JE has been managing everything for years and also looted government exchequer from fake withdrawal on various works, but when RTI applicants approached the office of X.En PWD Nowshera, the transparency act was violated time and again fearing exposure of massive frauds.
