TMA officials booked for fraud in Mansehra
MANSEHRA: The local anti-corruption establishment (ACE) has booked three officials of Tehsil Municipal Administration, Mansehra, and a contractor for misappropriating Rs1.3 million allocated for the Jabber Davlee water supply scheme.
“We have lodged the FIR against the former tehsil municipal officer, sub engineer, tehsil officer and a contractor, who without executing work on the water supply scheme withdrew Rs1.3 million,” said an anti-corruption official here on Wednesday.
The FIR was lodged on a written complaint of Liaquat Ali Shah of Jabber Davlee. Mr Shah had alleged that without starting work the contractor of the water supply scheme withdrew Rs1.3 million in connivance with the TMA officials.
He said that while the money was embezzled people of the area were still suffering because of none-availability of drinking water. An official, Qazi Naseem, told reporters that the FIR was registered against the three TMA officials and contractor Mohammad Haroon and raids were being conducted for their arrest.
