IAS couple gets poorer by Rs 3 crore!

OVER 10 months after I-T sleuths recovered Rs 3.1 crore (about USD 0.7 million) in cash from 1979 batch Madhya Pradesh cadre IAS couple, Arvind Kumar Joshi and Tinoo Joshi, police attached to the office of the MP Lokayukta raided their home once more. According to media reports, Lokayukta’s special police establishment (SPE) team that conducted the raids recovered cash worth Rs 7 lakh at the residence of the power couple located at a posh locality in Bhopal. Also, Rs 12 lakh in their salary accounts and gold ornaments of 146 grams were also reportedly found. In pure arithmetic terms, the IAS couple became poorer by about Rs 3 crore in less than one year!
Lokayukta’s office has registered a case against the suspended IAS couple.
Meanwhile, Bihar government has begun the process of converting corrupt officials’ properties and converting those in schools. In the first of such case, the home of former motor vehicle inspector (MVI) Raghuvansh Kunwar at Chaira village in Samastipur district was confiscated and according to the announcement made by Bihar HRD minister PK Sahi, the property would be converted into a school.
