PTI quotes AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj saying a Delhi Assembly panel probing an alleged Rs 100-crore scam in government-run cooperative bank may recommend strict action including “jail term” for some officials for not attending its meetings.
The committee probing the alleged scam in Delhi Nagrik Sehkari Bank had called three senior government officials — chief secretary Anshu Prakash, registrar of societies J B Singh and his predecessor Shurbir Singh — for hearing today but they remained absent.
The committee, including its chairman Rakhi Birla and members Saurabh Bhardwaj and Akhilesh Tripathi, registered their strong disapproval over the absence of the officials.
The chief secretary had approached the high court to prevent his summoning by the committee and was given relief by the court. The other two officials were reportedly on leave.
