Chandigarh, February 5

On the recommendation of the Vigilance Bureau, the state government has issued orders to register a criminal case under the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act against the then assistant of the RTA office, Ambala, Zile Singh.

An official spokesperson said the assistant was found guilty of acquiring disproportionate assets. The officials concerned had also been asked to recover Rs 7,92,121 from a contractor for using “sub-standard” material in the construction of residential quarters for officials of the Central Jail, Hisar.

Earlier, a probe conducted by the Vigilance Bureau revealed that officials of the RTA office, Ambala, had committed irregularities in the registration of vehicles while assistant Zile Singh had acquired disproportionate assets amounting to Rs 27.25 lakh. While the RTA officials involved in irregularities will face departmental action, a case will be registered against the assistant.

In another case, the Vigilance Bureau has recommended to register a case against Rajesh Sharan, a resident of Tezli village in Yamunanagar, for sending 16 players to Korea illegally.

Sharan allegedly charged Rs 20,000 from each player and created a federation during his posting in the Sports Department, Yamunanagar. Nine players continue to stay in Korea.
