AMN / Patna

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has recommended a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into alleged swindling of government money to the tune of over Rs 600 crore or more by Srijan, a Bhagalpur based non-governmental organisation (NGO).

A decision to this effect was taken by the Chief Minister after a high-level meeting held in the state Capital on Thursday. The NGO has allegedly siphoned off the government money and some nationalised banks and government officials are also suspects.

“The CM gave an order (to the state authorities) to hand over cases registered in the matter to the CBI for [an] inquiry,” an official statement said. The meeting was attended by state Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh, Director General of Police P K Thakur, Principal Secretary of Home Amir Subhani and Inspector General of Police (Economic Offence Unit) G S Gangwar. The cases against the NGO were being investigated by the economic offences unit (EOU) of the Bihar Police.

The state police on Thursday issued a lookout notice against the secretary of the accused NGO, ‘Srijan’ and her husband for allegedly swindling over Rs 950 crore of government money in Bhagalpur. “The lookout notice against NGO secretary Priya Kumar and her husband Amit Kumar has been sent to all airports of the country to prevent them from leaving the country,” Additional Director General (ADG) of Police (Headquarters) S K Singhal said. Priya Kumar is the daughter-in-law of Manorama Devi, the founder of the NGO. Manorama Devi died early this year after which the NGO was being run by Priya Kumar and Amit Kumar, son of Manorama Devi, officials said.

Singhal said that the bank account of the wife of arrested District Welfare Officer Arun Kumar has been frozen in Bhagalpur. Officials said during a raid, over Rs 1.50 crore was allegedly found deposited in that account. Ten arrests have been made so far in connection with the scam.
