Peon at MP Cooperative Bank amasses assets worth over Rs 3 crore
BHOPAL: The Lokayukta police on Tuesday apprehended a peon
working at Madhya Pradesh Cooperative Bank in Gwalior, who amassed properties
worth several crores of rupees.
The accused, Kuldeep Singh Yadav’s job was to bring in
business cards of visiting callers and carry documents from one cabin to
another at the Madhya Pradesh Cooperative Bank in Gwalior. To the outside
world, he is a humble man who joined as ‘peon’ in 1983.
But an early morning raid by Lokayukta police at his
palatial three-storied house at Purshotam Vihar colony in Gwalior on Tuesday
revealed that despite a paltry salary of less than Rs 25,000, he had assets
worth over Rs 3 crore.
And that is not it, reports also revealed that he owns
four more houses complete with the most luxurious of amenities in Gwalior
itself. Lokayukta police said that in a career spanning almost 31 years, Yadav,
who started on a salary of less than Rs 5,000 a month, couldn't possibly have
made more than Rs 16 lakh.
