Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir): The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths on Sunday concluded their raid on the premises of the corporate office of Jammu & Kashmir Bank.
The search started yesterday after registration of a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act by the ACB to look into allegations related to illegal or fraudulent appointments made by the officials of J&K Bank.
The case was registered after a complaint was received at headquarters of the Anti-Corruption Bureau.
