The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered two more FIRs against the office-bearers of Bihar-based Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Limited and others for the alleged diversion and misuse of government funds. The agency has lodged 18 cases so far.

The then and present branch managers and employees of a Bhagalpur branch of the Indian Bank and all the Srijan (Sabour unit) officials have been booked for alleged illegal transfer and misuse of funds from government accounts.

The second FIR has been registered against the then Land Acquisition Officer of Bihar’s Banka, Nazir, branch manager of the Bhagalpur Central Cooperative Bank Limited, branch managers of the Bank of Baroda and the Indian Bank, besides all Srijan (Bhagalpur) office- bearers.

RJD charge

In June, the CBI had registered four cases in connection with the alleged scam. The FIRs are being registered on a reference from the Bihar government, after the RJD targeted its former ally JD(U) and the BJP alleging a cover-up.
