Chandigarh, September 28

The Punjab Government today transferred Additional Chief Secretary (ACS), Social Welfare, Kirpa Shankar Saroj, who had recently exposed Rs 55 crore scam in the disbursal of funds under the SC post-matric scholarship scheme. He has been shifted to the Animal Husbandry Department.

The officer had claimed Social Welfare Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot had been protecting department officials allegedly involved in the wrong disbursal of funds.

After the minister had objected to the report submitted by the ACS, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had directed the Chief Secretary to probe the matter. The CS had deputed a three-member panel of IAS officers Jaspal Singh, KAP Sinha and Vivek Partap Singh to hold an inquiry. — TNS
