Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 17: Worries ahead for two Congress leaders after directions of the Special Judge Anticorruption Court Jammu, Tahir Khurshid Raina to reopen the infamous Elementary Teacher Training (ETT) institutes scam.
Pinpointing huge lapses in the investigation conducted by the Crime Branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police in the scam, Anti-Corruption Court directed a further probe into this high-profile case involving successive education ministers and higher-ups of the education department.
Important to mention here that in 2015 the Crime Branch Kashmir had arrested former chairman BOSE Chairman, Sheikh Bashir Ahmad for his alleged involvement in the scam.
Dar was said to be a "mastermind" in the allotment of the ETT colleges in 2003 without adhering to any rules, regulations, and norms. He was arrested when he was trying to flee to Srinagar from Jammu.
The said officer was close to two former senior Congress leaders who were Education Ministers in the previous coalition regimes in J&K. Interestingly, ETT colleges had been allotted merely on applications without verifying requisite infrastructure.
The Court also directed the Crime Branch to investigate the roles of successive Education Ministers of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir after the year 2000, including Secretaries of Education and Chairpersons of the Board of School Education, J&K.
The Special Judge Anticorruption Court Jammu, Tahir Khurshid Raina, while directing further investigation in the case, has passed strictures against the Investigation Officer of the case and the then Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) crime who was acting as SHO police station crime branch Jammu under whose supervision this "sham and shoddy" investigation was conducted.
