Another corrupt official's house confiscated in Bihar

In the second such case in Bihar, authorities here Saturday confiscated the house of a suspended treasury clerk who is facing prosecution in a corruption case, officials said. The house will be converted into a primary school 

Patna: Two days after confiscating the house of a suspended treasury clerk who is being prosecuted in a corruption case, the Bihar government also seized his plot of land Monday, an official said.

The clerk, Girish Kumar's plot in the Shivpuri area was seized by Patna administration officials on court orders.

"A plot of land belonging to Girish Kumar was seized. His other property will be seized soon," an official said.

Earlier, the house of Girish Kumar, located in the posh Kadamkuan area, was seized by officials on court orders Saturday. This was the second confiscation of a corrupt officials' property.

The house will be converted into a primary school, as has been announced by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The Patna High Court last week dismissed Girish Kumar's appeal challenging a special court's order to confiscate his property.

The clerk is accused of amassing assets worth Rs.51 lakh, disproportionate to his known sources of income.

A vigilance case was lodged against him in 2006 for amassing the assets between 1992 and 2004. The assets, as per a vigilance probe, include two plots and a house in the Bihar capital.

In September, a primary school was opened in the confiscated three-storey house here of Shiv Shankar Verma, a former minor irrigation secretary.

He became the first officer to face such action under the Bihar Special Courts Act, 2009.

Verma and eight of his relatives faced a case of amassing disproportionate assets amounting to Rs.1.44 crore.

Nitish Kumar has repeatedly said at public meetings in the last few months that ill-gotten property of corrupt officials will be confiscated and their houses will be turned into schools for poor children.
