Two IAS officers and one IPS in Bihar might soon be arrested as CBI is scheduled to charge sheet them for their involvements in multi-crores Srijan scam.

The central investigating agencies, CBI has speeded up its investigations but entire process has accelerated with returning back of CBI’s director, Alok Verma by recent verdict of Supreme court of India. Verma likely to take harsh actions against the culprits including the IAS and IPS officials who allegedly had some nexus with his  rival, Rakesh Asthana. Questions already pointed out the role of Asthana for playing a big role to protect some IAS and IPS involved in Srijan Scam.

An established source raveled that CBI is scheduled to file charge sheets against the Bihar officials who earlier posted as district magistrates and deputy inspector of police/ inspector general of police at Bhagalpur. “CBI might call them for interrogation and will arrest them,” the source apprehended.

It also said that CBI so far in its investigation in Srjan scam, castigated one former DM at Bhagalpur as pioneer of the scam as the central agency has several documents which clearly disclosed several instances against the IAS officer for his involvement in the scam. Similarly, some other former district magistrates of Bhagalpur who also under CBI’s screen, would be punished consequently. But at present CBI likely to take action against one former district magistrate among others, as the investigating agency has some “solid” evidences against them related to the scam. “But action against the IAS officer would take some time as the agency is scheduled to take action against the first IAS and the IPS first,” the source pointed out.

The source also revealed that the IPS officer earlier posted at Patna, helped Late Manorama Devi, the founder of Srijan Mahila Vikash Sahayog  Samilt at Sabour, Bhagalpur when her one closed relative died in a mysterious circumstances at Patna. The IPS later became the DIG at Bhagalpur also. CBI has found huge money transaction by Srijan to the account of the IPS but the officer clarified that he earlier invested some amount with Srijan Mahila bank. “Srijan Mahila bank operated by Srijan Mahila Vikash Sahayog Samity didn’t had any permission from Reserve bank of Indian for banking services. But it was affiliated with Bihar cooperative department and had obtained the permission to operate the bank among the ladies SHGs having credit limit up to Rs 50 thousand only. So how the IPS had invested his money at that bank? Many like him also deposited their unaccounted amounts at that bank,” the source pointed out.

It further said that CBI already geared up for the formalities like informing and taking clearance from the government to arrest the officials under its scanner.

The sources also said that CBI is likely to speed up its operations for searching out Amit Kumar and his wife Priya Kumar who dramatically disappeared from Bhagalpur soon Srijan scam was surfaced. Asthana’s role was under question as senior RJD leader, Sivanand Tiwaray earlier blamed the CBI official for provide protection to the couple who are also the main accused in Srijan scam. Tiwary earlier blamed that since Asthana has his connections at Ranchi the place from where Priya Kumar is also belonging and also have some relation with her. He demanded a probe into the episode. “But when Verma has returned back and accelerated the investigation, CBI now could find the couple easily soon,” the source pointed out.
