9/7/2019 11:19:30 PM
Early Times Report

JAMMU, Sept 7 : In a much publicized subsidized kerosene oil scam, Special Judge Anticorruption Jammu YP Bourney directed Crime Branch (CB) Jammu to reframe the charge sheet(s) with special reference to the time period and the material against the individual accused persons and also to accord consideration to the material on record vis-a-vis the other persons involved who have not been arrayed as accused in the instant charge sheet.
While directing Crime Branch to reframe the charge sheets, Special Judge Anticorruption Jammu YP Bourney observed that there are allegations of issuance of a large number of retail dealer licenses during the period from 1997-98 to 2006-07 thereby raising number of such retail outlets from 300 to 1111 by the year 2006. However, the Directors responsible for the issuance of those licenses, have not been identified and the only Director CAPD arrayed as accused in the charge-sheet namely Subhash Chander Jandial retired in March 2002. Further, the licenses were issued in bulk on mere asking of the applicants whosoever applied in total disregard to the norms and guidelines issued by the government from time to time without following any procedure which was just and fair and even without verifying whether there was any need actually for the opening of a new/additional outlet in a particular locality, the particulars of households to be served by a particular retail outlet was not specified leaving it open to all the retailers of the area to claim the quota of kerosene oil of individual households multiple times and consequent pilferage of the same. the owners/licensees of retail outlets have not been arraigned as accused despite material against them having not accounted for the kerosene received by the head highly subsidized rate and actually distributed by them to the intended consumers and the area inspectors responsible for supervising these sale operations have also not been clearly stated.
Court further observed that there are allegations that 110 retail outlets were found non-existent but the monthly quota of the kerosene was released in their name. The area inspectors responsible for not reporting about those non-existent outlets have also not been clearly identified. The wholesale dealers responsible for supplying the quota of kerosene to the retailers including even those retail outlets which were non-functional/non-existent have also been let off conveniently without any reason. The individual liabilities of accused persons viz a viz the material on record against them as collected during the course of investigation have also not been clearly spelt out.
Court further observed that in light of the afore-stated observations, the investigating agency is directed to reframe the charge sheet(s) with special reference to the time period and the material against the individual accused persons and also to accord consideration to the material on record vis-a-vis the other persons involved who have not been arrayed as accused in the instant charge sheet. The exercise shall be completed within a period of two months. --JNF
