SVC asks officers to expedite investigation

Calling for expeditious conclusion of under investigation cases, the Chief Vigilance Commissioner, State Vigilance Commission, Kuldeep Khoda has asked the officers of Vigilance Organization to speed up the investigation process and ensure that corruption related cases are disposed of in a time bound manner. He asked them to make better use of latest gadgets and technologies in collecting evidence while dealing with such cases. He said inordinate delay in investigation can some time change the game and favour the public servant indicted in criminal conspiracy.

This was stated by the Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) while chairing a meeting of the Commission, held at Srinagar, convened to review the status of  under investigation corruption related cases of Kashmir Division.

Vigilance Commissioner, Dr R.K.Jearath, Addl Secretary, SVC, Dr Firdous Ahmad Giri, SSP Vigilance, Mr Mohammad Majid Malik, SSP Vigilance, Mr Abdul Qayoum, Deputy Director Prosecution, Mr Mahesh Sharma were present in the meeting.

Highlighting the importance of time management in dealing with corruption related cases, the CVC asked concerned SSPs to issue appropriate instruction to the investigating officers of the Organization for making best use of legal powers as laid down in Cr.p.c  so that investigation and verification of cases is completed in minimum time frame.

Stressing for early completion of under investigation cases, the CVC  asked the officers of Vigilance Organization to take every precaution while dealing with corruption related cases, so that the officials involved in corruption do not go scot free despite involvement in corruption cases.  Pointing towards their responsibilities, he said that every move of the Organization should be to go deep into the investigation, leaving no chance of ambiguity, thereby making case strong for prosecution. 

While briefing the Commission about the status of under investigation cases, it transpired that most of the cases pertain to misappropriation of public funds, non execution of works for which public money has been drawn, manipulation of official records especially revenue records, causing loss to state exchequer by public servants for their personal gains, amassing disproportionate assets beyond their known sources of income besides misusing of official positions by Govt officials. The Commission was informed that over 200 cases have been received by the Organization during 2016, of them, 55 stand disposed off, apart from completing verifications in 36 cases,  besides conducting joint inspections and secret checks in 12 cases and preliminary enquiry in 5 cases, the Commission was told.
