Bhagalpur (Bihar) [India], Oct 22 (ANI): The Bihar Police on Monday denied theft of important dossiers pertaining to Srijan scam from the house of one of the accused Manorama Devi.
Speaking to ANI, Bihar Additional Director General of Police Sanjeev Kumar Singhal said that all the significant documents have earlier been seized by the probe agency.
"None of the vital documents have been stolen from Devi's house. The Central Investigation Bureau had already seized all the papers related to the scam when it initiated the probe," he said.
Devi had filed a complaint to the police claiming that thieves had barged into her house and stolen some of the important documents related to the scam.
The Srijan scam involves an alleged transfer of government funds amounting to Rs 1000 crore to the accounts of a non-government organization (NGO), Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Limited, which used to provide vocational training to women.
The NGO allegedly pilfered funds from the bank accounts of the Bhagalpur district administration to meet requirements of government welfare schemes. The alleged scam took place between 2004 and 2014. (ANI)
