Early Times Report

Srinagar, May 24: Jammu and Kashmir’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) registered two FIRs against a Revenue Officer on Friday, one about the alleged amassing of disproportionate assets and another related to an “illegal and fraudulent” mutation.
The FIRs were registered after ACB conducted verification into the allegations of accumulation of disproportionate assets (DA) through corrupt practices by Patwari Halqa Matipora Pattan Abdul Majid Sheikh alias Malla of Wahigund Kunzer, Baramulla.
The official is now posted as Girdawar Qanoongo Circle Nowshera Tehsil Boniyar.
A spokesman of the ACB said their verification revealed that the public servant is in possession of various disproportionate assets in the shape of immovable, movable properties acquired by him in his name as well as in the name of his family members.
“The value of assets so accumulated as well as expenditures incurred by the suspect public servant were found disproportionate to his known sources of income for which he failed to satisfactorily give account,” the ACB said.
Accordingly, on culmination of the probe, a case under Section 5(1) (e) r/w 5 (2) J&K P.C Act. Svt. 2006 was registered in Police Station ACB Baramulla against Abdul Majid.
Immediately after registration of the case, searches were also conducted at the residence of the accused, during which some cash of Rs 3.80 lakh beside other incriminating documents were also recovered which were seized on spot, ACB said.
During the course of this verification, it surfaced that the suspect has purchased immovable property in the shape of proprietary land of more than 16 Kanals from many persons at Wahigund Kunzer from time to time, and these properties have been fraudulently mutated by way of two oral gift deeds in order to evade applicable stamp duty, registration fee, among others.
“It was found that the accused Girdawar, in league with revenue officers and officials Bashir Ahmad Reshi of Kanloo, Patwari Halqa Wailoo, Kralpor, Manzoor Ahmad Khanday of Ultkoo, Kawarhuma Tangmarg, Patwari Halqa Wailoo Kralpora, Altaf Hussain Khan of Balgarden, Srinagar, then Naib Tehsildar Wailoo Kralpora, had illegally and fraudulently entered two different oral gift mutations dated 15.01.2015 in the mutation register of the revenue record of Patwari Halqa, Wailoo Kralpora, Kunzer, in utter violation of laid down norms in vogue,” the ACB said.
The verification conducted further revealed that the officers in league with suspect beneficiaries have made illegal insertions in revenue records.
“The verification conducted as such revealed that the above-named revenue officers and officials, by abuse of their official positions and under a well-knit criminal conspiracy with the suspect beneficiary Abdul Majid Sheikh @ Malla, have paved a way to evade the applicable stamp duty as well as registration charges, thereby conferring huge undue pecuniary gains upon themselves as well as to the beneficiary with a commensurate loss to Government exchequer. Accordingly, a separate FIR No. 08 under Section 5(1) (d) r/w 5(2) J&K PC Act Svt-2006 and Sections 467, 468,471,120-B of RPC was registered at ACB PS Baramulla, and investigations were initiated against all three revenue officials, including the beneficiary accused, namely Abdul Majid Sheikh,” the spokesman said.
Further investigations in both cases are going on.
