An official spokesperson of the VB said on the basis of an inquiry, accused Sucha Singh Bandi, former Deputy Welfare Commissioner, Labour Welfare Board; and Jagdeep Singh Saini, former Deputy Controller, Finance and Accounts; have been arrested for embezzlement and causing loss to the state exchequer.
