Mohali, December 8

The Punjab Vigilance Bureau (VB) has arrested two former officials of the Punjab Labour Welfare Board for misappropriation of government funds worth crores. The two employees posted at the Mohali office had been booked by the VB at the Kharar police station.

A spokesperson for the VB said on the basis of an inquiry, Sucha Singh Bandi, former deputy welfare commissioner, Labour Welfare Board; and Jagdeep Singh Saini, former deputy controller finance and Accounts (DCFA), had been arrested for embezzlement and causing huge loss to the state exchequer.

The VB spokesman said Hina, accounts assistant of this board, was arrested earlier in this case. He said Hina, in connivance with the two officials, had misappropriated about Rs 1.57 crore through Internet banking.

Hina, a resident of Manav Enclave, Kharar, had embezzled the amount through 172 transactions to multiple bank accounts. During the probe, it came to light that Bandi and Saini never cross-checked the cash book with the bank transactions. Therefore, it has been established that these two officials were involved in the misappropriation of government funds.

The VB had already registered a case against them under Sections 409, 420, 465, 467, 468, 471, and 120-B of the IPC at the Kharar police station.
