A disproportionate assets case has been filed by the CBI, Visakhapatnam branch, against a former assistant commissioner of customs, Kakinada, and his wife, in the Principal Special Judge Court for CBI cases here on Thursday.
The accused, R.V.L. Narasimha Rao, was charged with acquiring assets to the tune of Rs. 90,60,095 in his name and the name of his wife during his tenure as assistant commissioner of customs in Kakinada between July 2007 and July 2011. Of these, assets valued at Rs.31,20,080 were found to be disproportionate to their known sources of income.
His wife did not have sufficient pecuniary resources. Assets worth Rs.37,49,354 were acquired in her name during the same period. She abetted her husband in committing the crime by allowing him to acquire assets in her name.
On completion of the investigation, the CBI filed a charge sheet against Narasimha Rao, the then assistant commissioner of customs, Kakinada, under Sections 13 (2) read with 13(1) (e) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 and against his wife under Section 109 IPC.
Case against principal
In a separate case, the CBI Visakhapatnam Branch, has filed a charge sheet against Kalyani Sundar, Principal, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Eluru.
Kalyani Sundar allegedly demanded and accepted a bribe of Rs. 5,000 from the complainant for releasing his salary for August, 2012 and for taking him back as a teacher in the school on contract basis.
The complainant has been working as a primary teacher on contract basis for the last one year. The accused had asked the complainant in September last year to give Rs.6,000 as bribe for releasing his salary for August, 2012, and for taking him back as a teacher in KV, Eluru, on contract basis.
When the complainant requested the Principal to reduce the bribe amount, Kalyani Sundar, reduced the bribe amount to Rs.5,000 and sought payment on September 6. As the complainant was not willing to give the bribe, he submitted a complaint to CBI, Visakhapatnam, for taking necessary legal action.
A case was registered and the accused was caught red handed while demanding and accepting the bribe. Investigation revealed that the accused was also taking illegal gratification from other contract teachers regularly.
On completion of the investigation CBI, Visakhapatnam, has filed a charge sheet against Kalyani Sundar under Section 7 and 13(2) read with 13(1)(a) and (1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.
