Charge-sheet in JBT scam soon: CBI

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, November 16
The CBI will soon file a charge-sheet in the junior basic trained (JBT) teachers’ recruitment scam, in which former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, his son Ajay, and his close associates are the accused.

“The probe into the scam is almost over and the charge-sheet will be filed soon,” a top CBI official, who did not wish to be quoted, told The Tribune today. However, he refrained from giving the exact timeframe before which the charge-sheet will be filed, saying that “it will be done soon”.

The scam had come to light after IAS officer Sanjiv Kumar filed an application before the Supreme Court, alleging that the then Chief Minister and his sons Ajay and Abhay had provided jobs to thousands of applicants by taking money.

The CBI had raided several places in Delhi, Kurukshetra, Palwal (Faridabad district), Bhiwani, Chandigarh and Sirsa on April 17 and quizzed Ajay on September 23. The CBI had registered an FIR on May 24, 2004, against the former Officer-on-Special Duty and former Political Adviser to the then Chief Minister, two private persons and others. The FIR was registered following disclosure of criminal offences during the preliminary enquiry registered by the agency on December 12, 2003, on the orders of the Supreme Court dated November 25, 2003, passed in a criminal writ petition.

Meanwhile, CBI officials probing the case against Chautalas admitted that the probe was moving at a snail’s pace as physical verification of the properties, allegedly owned by them, was taking longer time than expected.

Issar to probe charges against ex-DGP Malik
Shubhadeep Choudhury
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
Ms Promilla Issar, Haryana Revenue Secretary, was yesterday appointed the inquiry officer for probing the allegations against a former Haryana DGP, Mr M.S. Malik.

Ms Issar was assigned the job following the retirement earlier this month of the DGP, Mr Nirmal Singh, who had been entrusted with the probe.

Mr Malik and Mr Nirmal Singh had both retired from service on October 31. Mr Malik was put under suspension earlier and served with a charge sheet by the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led state government for his alleged act of raising the Haryana State Industrial Security Force (HSISF) in violation of the norms.

It is learnt that while Mr Malik is getting his full pension, the state government has held up his gratuity.

Besides being the Revenue Secretary, Ms Issar is also the Vice-Chancellor of the all-women university coming up at Sonepat. The new assignment will be an additional burden on the already hard-pressed officer. However, she still has 16 months left in service during which she is expected to finalise her report regarding the allegations made in the charge sheet served on the former DGP.

Mr Malik, who was the DGP of Haryana during the INLD regime, was also given additional charge of Director of the State Vigilance Bureau (SVB) by the then Chief Minister, Mr Om Prakash Chautala.

It is his action in his capacity as the Director of the SVB which infuriated Congress leaders. The arrest and incarceration of Mr Anand Singh Dangi, a confidant of Chief Minister Hooda and an old-time foe of the then Chief Minister, Mr Chautala, in particular, proved costly for the former DGP.

The HSISF, raised by the Chautala-led government shortly before the last Assembly elections, was disbanded after the Congress formed the government in the state. Mr Hooda said there was no demand for the force raised on the pattern of the Central Industrial Security Force.

Since Mr Malik has already retired from service, it may not be possible for the state government to take any disciplinary action against him. However, massive funds were spent on raising the HSISF and Mr Malik could be held guilty on account of the financial loss and his post-retirement benefits could be curtailed. For this, the government will have to substantiate the charges against the retired IPS officer.

Purchase panels recast after a month
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
It has taken more than a month for the Haryana Government to reconstitute the High-Powered Purchase Committee (HPPC) following the resignation of its Chairman, Mr Venod Sharma, from the Council of Ministers on October 6.

The new HPPC, notified on Tuesday by a communication (memo no. 2/7/2006-41B-II) from the Principal Secretary, Department of Industries, has the Agriculture Minister as its Chairman.

There are also other members of the committee, whose job is to carry out high-value purchases for various government departments. The members are the Finance Minister, the Revenue Minister, the Industry Minister, the Minister in charge of the indenting department, the Principal Secretary, Finance, the Principal Secretary of the indenting department, the Principal Secretary, Industries, the head of the indenting department, the Director, Supplies and Disposals, and a technical expert from the Industry Department.

The Director, Supplies and Disposals, is also the member-secretary of the committee.

The Special High-Powered Purchase Committee (SHPPC) for carrying out purchases of boards, corporations and federations, also notified by the November 14 letter, is also headed by the Agriculture Minister. The Ministers in charge of the Finance, Revenue and Industry Departments are also members of this committee while the remaining members are officials attached to the indenting organisation, the chairman of the indenting organisation and officials of the Industry and Finance Departments.

The head of the indenting organisation will be the member- secretary of the committee.

Importantly, the Finance Minister, Mr Birender Singh, figures ahead of the Agriculture Minister, Mr H. S. Chatha, in the order of precedence of the state government. Yet, the latter has been made the Chairman of the HPPC and the SHPPC, ignoring Mr Birender Singh's claim to the positions.

The file containing the proposal on the new committees was sent to the Finance Minister for his concurrence. The Finance Minister took considerable time before he gave his approval to the proposal.

The Industry Department issued the letter about the new committees the very next day after the file was cleared by the Finance Minister.
