Early Times Report
JAMMU, July 10: Srinagar Municipal Corporation's Deputy Mayor Sheikh Imran has given up the prefix of "Mujahid" tag in his name on his social media accounts, a few days after he was booked for numerous financial irregularities.
Imran who had started calling himself "Mujahid" earlier this year only to rake up a controversy has silently given up the controversial tag. Interestingly, he had asked his Chamchas also to use the prefix of "Mujahid" before their names.
While many such persons still carry "Mujahid" before their names on social media accounts, including that on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Imran has silently removed it from his name.
A few months ago, Imran had said he was proud to call himself "Mujahid" and that he would uphold the same come what may.
But things changed after he was booked for numerous financial irregularities.
In June, the Anti-Corruption Bureau registered a case against Imran and officials of the Jammu and Kashmir Bank for alleged illegal appropriation of crores of rupees from the state exchequer.
During investigation, it was revealed that Imran, who is director of the Kehwa Group of Companies, submitted a proposal to the J&K Bank for establishment of controlled atmosphere (CA) storage under the name of Kehwa Square Pvt Ltd in Pulwama.
A joint inspection team of various experts and government officials conducted an inspection of the site and the assessed cost of the project to Rs. 33 crore.
The subsidy component was calculated at Rs. 16.50 crore -- 50 per cent of the estimated project cost (EPC) -- purportedly as per norms of Horticulture Mission for North East & Himalayan (HMNEH) states, he said.
But Imran is accused of grabbing the subsidy and has huge liabilities as well.
According to the Anti Crime Bureau, the Kehwa Group took a loan of Rs. 138 crore from the J&K Bank and got it restructured to Rs. 78 crore with the help of bank officials
Imran, a "former Mujahid" is also accused of owing millions to the Srinagar Development Authority for having acquired office space at the Sangarmal city center in Kashmir.
Despite repeated attempts, Imran couldn't be contacted for comments.
