 ‘Examine Disproportionate Assets of Tainted Officers’

SRINAGAR — Taking strong note of the corrupt practices in the state, the Governor Satya Paul Malik has directed authorities to set in motion exercise to initiate action against corrupt officials and also examine the disproportionate assets of tainted officials.

KNS quoting well placed sources in the civil secretariat reported that scores of government employees have come under scanner of Governor Satya Paul Malik for their alleged involvement in corrupt practices.

“The Governor’s office at Civil Secretariat and Raj Bhawan is monitoring the activities of these officials on day-to-day basis and action against some is expected soon. Governor has asked the authorities to make a system in which whosoever involved in corruption will be dealt with,” they said.

“I have no problem to say that there was corruption in the administration in Jammu and Kashmir. We have taken action against 2-3 senior officers. The Government is examining the situation and will seize disproportionate assets of the officials. It is the share of the people, which the corrupt people are swindling. This can’t be tolerated,” these sources quoting Governor said.
Sources added that most of these tainted officers are working in different departments like R&B, Health, PHE, and Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs).

Sources said that government will sent their files to State Vigilance Organization (SVO) and other agencies for making fool-proof cases against them. “To make the case fool-proof, the Government will backup these with documentary evidence from anti-corruption bodies and other agencies including the Criminal Investigation Department of the police before further action,” sources maintained.

Sources further said that governor has been informed that tainted officers in the state have been from time to time saved by the respective heads. “Cases are hushed up at the instance of seniors and are not taken to their logical ends. The officers, who should have landed in jails for their wrongdoings and unlawful acts, have risen to the higher ranks,” according to sources, governor was informed.

One of the top officials of the government said that the corruption was a major challenge in the state with various anti-graft agencies receiving complaints on routine bases. “It is true that corruption is a major challenge for the government and its adverse effects on the society cannot be underestimated,” the official said.
