J&K official booked for corruption

Jammu: An assistant general manager of Jammu and Kashmir Cooperative Supply and Marketing Federation (JAKFED) Limited was today booked for alleged corruption, a spokesman of the state vigilance organisation said today.

A case was registered against assistant general manager Mukesh Damral and others after a surprise check revealed that he amassed huge wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income by causing loss to the corporation, the spokesman said.

During the course of joint surprise check and on scrutiny of records, it surfaced that the accused in league with other officers of JAKFED had invited tenders during the years 2013-2017 carrying vague terms and conditions to accommodate his blue-eyed firms including fake firms established by him in the name of his close relatives and friends which were actually run by him by proxy, with the objective to obtain huge pecuniary benefits with dishonest intention, illegally and fraudulently,” it alleged.
