Departmental permission has been sought for legal action against deputy director of tribal welfare department Anurag Shankhdhar in the scholarship scam. After this, SIT will try to obtain a warrant against Shankhdhar. Meanwhile, the director of the department, BR Tamta, has denied receiving any letter from the SIT.
In the scholarship scam in Haridwar district, former District Social Welfare Officer Anurag Shankhdhar has been named as SIT on the basis of evidence. Due to the increase in the section of the Prevention of Corruption Act in the lawsuit, the complaint was handed over to Haridwar’s CO Sadar Ayush Agrawal. Shankhdhar is currently Deputy Director in Tribal Welfare Department. Due to the fear of arrest, he is also absent from his duty. The department has also issued a notice to them.
In the meantime, the SIT has written a letter to Departmental permission before taking action against former District Social Welfare Officer. BR Tamta, Director of Tribal Welfare Department said that action will be taken as soon as the letter of SIT is received. Due to absence of duty, Anurag sent a notice to Shankhdhar at his home. So far, no reply has been received from them on this behalf.
