Mizoram ACB Launches Probe Against 16 Govt Engineers in Corruption Case

The FIR says the accused prepared revised estimates of Rs 1,470 lakh for the projects after they had been completed.
Aizawl, May 28 : Mizoram’s Anti-Corruption Bureau has started criminal investigations against 16 government engineers, including three who have since retired, for allegedly swindling Rs 933 lakh while working on two mini-hydel projects over one and a half decades ago.

The FIR says the accused prepared revised estimates of Rs 1,470 lakh for the projects after they had been completed (ostensibly to pay outstanding liabilities but of which Rs 373 lakh remain unaccounted for).

They are also accused of spending almost Rs 129 lakh to “repair vehicles”, making payments for which no vouchers are available, buying material that never reached the site and ordering unnecessary materials.
