Crime Branch arrests 3 FCI employees
MISAPPROPRIATION OF GOVT RATION
Jammu, Dec 3: Crime Branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police today arrested three employees of Food Corporation of India (FCI) for alleged misappropriation of CAPD ration meant for Kashmir Valley.
The accused have been booked for allegedly issuing fake vouchers and causing huge financial loss to the state exchequer. The arrested employees have been identified as Satvir Singh, Vijay Anad and Rattan Chand. They were arrested from Jammu.
Inspector General of Police (Crime), Raja Aijaz Ali told Greater Kashmir that an FIR-17/2009 was pending investigation. He said that the FIR was lodged in 2009 after a complaint was received that CAPD ration meant for the Kashmir never reached its destination from the FCI godowns in Jammu.
He said that it was alleged that nearly 144 vehicles carrying food grains to Valley never crossed Lower Munda toll post, despite issuance of vouchers from the employees at the godowns.
The IGP said that during investigation, it was established that vouchers were issued to 44 vehicles in the godowns. However, he said when the matter was further investigated, it was ascertained that the vehicles in favour of which the vouchers were issued were actually cars, scooters and motorcycles.
“We found that ration was never sent to theValley and it was diverted under a criminal conspiracy and with active involvement of some of the employees on duty at godowns”, he said.
