26 Août 2017

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday registered ten cases related to the alleged illegal transfer and misuse of funds from government bank accounts in Bihar's districts of Bhagalpur and Saharsa. The RJD has called it a bigger scam than Madhya Pradesh's Vyapam swindle after at least two prime accused in the case were reported dead over the past week.

The central probe agency has registered 10 FIRs in the case, which was being investigated by the Economic Offences Unit (EOU) of the Bihar Police.

Additional Director General of Bihar Police SK Singhal so far 14 FIRs have been lodged and 18 accused have been arrested by the Special Investigation Team of Bihar Police, after an order by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The NGO allegedly pilfered funds meant for government welfare schemes from the bank accounts of the Bhagalpur district administration.

The CBI began the investigation in the Srijan scam on Thursday.
