[INDIA_WBA] REVELATIONS from Dir. of Vigilance, Customs & Central Excise, Delhi

Posted by ekavi on July 13, 2006

Friends,

Some of us had filed RTI applications on 5/4/2006 and we received the replies on 6/5/2006. Please find attached herewith scanned copies of the same.

The CVC norms have been thrown in the winds. Most of the officers are continuing in violation of the guidelines for sensitive postings, beyondt he stipulated three year period. Perhaps this explains why the Vigilance Dept. has become a hotbed of corruption.

Please note that the Directorate General of Vigilance, Customs & Central Excise has furnished part information only. They have avoided straight answers for two of the very pertinent questions, viz.

 

a)     Has there been a violation of the circular stated in 3 (i) above in case of such officers?

 

b)     In case there has been a violation of the said circular, the names and designations of the persons responsible and punishable for the same.

To know the answers please read thru’ the attached reply.

Do give your comments if any. Media should highlight this state of affairs.

Respected Sirs / Madam,
Subject:

1)       FIR registered against 90 former and serving corporators based on complaint filed by a whistleblower, Jalgaon Municipal Commissioner, Shri Praveen Gedam – Apprehension of miscarriage of justice; appeal for personal intervention.

2)       Malafide transfer of Shri Praveen Gedam.

Reference: Our earlier letter dated 16/2/2006 on subject no.1.

Apprehension of miscarriage of justice has come true. It is evident from the following facts:

1)       Delay of one week in registration of the FIR for the Gharkul scam.

2)       None of the accused have been arrested so far, even though anticipatory bail applications of some of them have been rejected.

3)       The accused had sent defamation notices to Shri Praveen Gedam.

4)       Charge sheet has not been filed. Investigation is at a virtual standstill. A PIL has been filed in the Aurangabad bench of the Mumbai High Court, praying for a CBI inquiry.

5)       Shri Praveen Gedam has used his statutory powers and issued disqualification notices to the accused corporators.

6)       On the very next day, the Urban Development Department (UDD) which is under the Chief Minister (CM), issued a mala fide order which not only stayed these notices but also barred Shri Praveen Gedam from taking action in other cases of corruption. A PIL has been filed in the Aurangabad bench of the Mumbai High Court, challenging the impugned order.

7)       Jalgaon police has not registered FIR in another corruption case relating to airport project. A PIL has been filed in the Aurangabad bench of the Mumbai High Court, challenging the refusal of police to register FIR for the Airport scam.

8)       Shri Praveen Gedam, who took charge in October, 2005, has been mala fidely transferred by UDD / CM within 8 months by calling it a routine transfer.

   

Kindly ensure the following immediately:  

1)      Handing over of the investigation of the Gharkul scam to the CBI.

2)      Registration of FIR for the Airport scam & handing over to the CBI.

3)      Reinstatement of Shri Praveen Gedam and withdrawal of the impugned order restraining him from using his statutory powers.  

 

Yours truly,
