Year after multi-crore JK SCB scam came to light, aspirants await investigation results
Srinagar: More than a year after Jammu and Kashmir Anti-Corruption Bureau (JKACB) began its investigation into multi-crore embezzlement and illegal appointment case against former JK State Cooperative Bank chairman Mohmmad Shafi Dar, the aspirants who ‘couldn’t make it to the posts’ have sought a thorough investigation into the matter.
Dar was arrested in Srinagar in connection with his involvement in the 223-crore land scam involving the JK State Co-operative Bank and appointing around 62 people, most of them his relatives, illegally in the bank.
However, the former Chairman was later released on bail in December 2020 but is under investigation for the case of illegal appointments of candidates for bank posts since 2012 and embezzlement of money.
The setback has surrounded the emotions of the dropped candidates whose last and only hope is the investigation team now.
They strive for answers…
