Wages in name of dead jawan since 19891 min read
Bettiah: Police have lodged an FIR against a man who allegedly impersonated, worked and received perks and privileges entitled to homeguard jawan Nandlal Yadav who died in 1989.
Bettiah Town police station officer Nityanand Chauhan said Shiv Kumar Yadav, a resident of Jamuniya Premnagar (Sahodra police station of West Champaran) has been made the named accused for committing the fraud. “We are probing the matter. He has not been arrested as yet,” he said.
The matter came to the fore following receipt of an anonymous letter at the Homeguard office in Bettiah. “In the course of investigation, the allegations were found true. It’s a case of fraud where Shiv manipulated document and worked for the homeguards for 26 years,” said DSP (homeguard) Sanjay Kumar.
“We are also investigating how and under what circumstances such a goof-up took place,” he said. In the FIR lodged on the statement of homeguard inspector Munna Tiwari, Shiv, a resident of Jamuniya Premnagar, was fraudulently working in place of Nandlal Yadav, a homeguard jawan, who died in 1989.
Terming it a case of fraud, Munna told the police in the FIR that Shiv manipulated the documents and began impersonating as Nandlal, and even received training and other benefits. The two sons of the dead homeguard jawan told investigators that their father Nandlal died in 1989 when he was living at Narayipur in Bagaha sub-division.
After his death, the family shifted to Bhathhoda under Sathi police station in West Champaran.
