JAMMU: The Jammu and Kashmir Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) has asked the State Vigilance Organisation to expedite investigation into corruption cases.
“The officers of Vigilance Organisation should speed up the investigation process and ensure that corruption-related cases are disposed of in a time-bound manner,” CVC Kuldeep Khoda said.
He asked the investigation officers to make better use of latest gadgets and technologies in collecting evidence while dealing with such cases.
Inordinate delay in investigation can some time change the game and favour the public servant indicted in criminal conspiracy, he said while chairing a review meeting.
Most of the cases being handled by the vigilance department pertain to misappropriation of public funds, non-execution of works for which public money has been drawn, manipulation of official records especially revenue records, causing loss to state exchequer by public servants for their personal gains, amassing disproportionate assets beyond their known sources of income besides misusing of official positions by government officials.
The CVC was informed that over 200 cases have been received by the vigilance organisation in 2016, of which 55 have been disposed off and verification has been completed in 36 cases.
