VB nabs 2 EOs for financial irregularities

Share This

Batala, July 24

Vigilance sleuths from the Amritsar range today nabbed four employees of the Batala, Fatehgarh Churian and Gurdaspur Municipal Committees (MC), including Executive Officers (EOs) Bhupinder Singh and Ashok Kumar, after day-long raids at three places.

The sleuths were also looking for former Batala MC president Naresh Mahajan. Officials raided his house in the morning, but could not find him. Raids were still on at the time of filing of this report.

In June 2018, former Batala MC vice-president Harinder Singh Kalsi had filed a complaint with the Vigilance Bureau citing several irregularities in the working of the MC. It took the vigilance nearly two years to get to the bottom of the matter, primarily because of the political clout enjoyed by the officials.

The complaint was handed over to the ADGP (Vigilance) and an FIR was registered against 12 persons. Bhupinder Singh is posted as the EO, Fatehgarh Churian, while Ashok Kumar is working on the same post at Gurdaspur. Apart from the two EOs, the FIR also has the names of Batala MC employees Swetha Rani and Gurlal Singh. —TNS
