Srijan probe: CBI to quiz politicians in Bihar soon
The CBI, probing the multi- crore Srijan scam in Bihar, will soon question local politicians of the state as part of its investigation into the case.
The agency has already booked several bureaucrats of the state government in connection with the case.
Sources said, “Investigations by the CBI into the multi- crore Srijan scam have revealed that entries in certain bank accounts of the accused NGO — Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti ( SMVSS) — were made even after they ( accounts) were closed. There are allegations that local politicians played crucial role in making illegal entries in the bank accounts of the accused NGO”.
Besides, the agency is also probing the role of senior officials of certain nationalised banks in this regard, sources said adding that the CBI may soon register fresh cases against them as part of its investigation into the scam.
Sources said, “Investigators have found that entries pertaining to dubious transactions were made after closure of the account of the NGO in Bihpur block of Bhagalpur district. The agency, which has so far registered around 25 FIRs in the Srijan scam, is preparing to register more cases”.
The agency is also preparing to examine two former district revenue officers of Saharsa district in connection with the case.
