Court Discharges CEO, others in corruption case

Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 20: In a significant development, the Additional Anticorruption Judge Jammu OP Bhagat discharged the former Chief Education Officer (CEO) Tarsem Lal and other individuals in a corruption case related to irregular appointments.
According to the prosecution, it was alleged that the CEO of Jammu had opened a government primary school in Dhar Mohalla Sardaran and appointed Amarjeet Singh as a teacher without following proper procedures. The appointment was made without publishing advertisements, inviting application forms, or preparing a merit panel as required by the norms and rules. Further investigations revealed that a new primary school was opened in Dhar Channi Dewano Zone Khour in violation of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) norms, and it was later merged with another school. It was found that the CEO issued sanction orders for the non-existent school after the selection process for the ReT (Rehber-e-Taleem) teachers had already taken place. The entire process was deemed illegal and conducted with the intention of benefiting the selected individuals.
Following the verification process, an FIR (First Information Report) was registered against Tarsem Lal, Amarjeet Singh Pujwal, Mandeep Kour, and others under relevant sections of the Jammu and Kashmir Prevention of Corruption Act and the Ranbir Penal Code. However, after considering the arguments from both sides, the Additional Anticorruption Judge concluded that there were no grounds or suspicions to justify criminal prosecution against the accused. The court cited the settled legal position and various judgments of the Apex Court, emphasizing that the accused individuals cannot be presumed to have committed the alleged offenses. Therefore, the accused involved in the charges under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Ranbir Penal Code were discharged, and the case against them was dismissed.
This development brings an end to the legal proceedings against the CEO and others involved in the corruption case related to illegal appointments.
