Muktsar, August 14

The police have booked a former sarpanch of Chak Motlewala village here for allegedly embezzling grants of Rs 22.65 lakh. It was only after the executive engineer of the Rural Development Department conducted an inquiry into the case for a second time that the accused was booked.

The accused, Hukamjit Singh, allegedly forged some bills to embezzle the development funds during the previous SAD-BJP government.

A source in the district administration said the order to conduct an inquiry against the accused had come from the head office in Chandigarh. The role of the then panchayat secretary was also under the scanner. — TNS
