Friday, 03 July 2020 | PNS | KORAPUT

Vigilance officials on Thursday seized more than Rs 11.73 lakh from a car by which Koraput District Agriculture Officer (DAO) Pradeep Kumar Mohanty was travelling.

Mohanty, who was heading towards Bhubaneswar after his transfer, was intercepted by the Vigilance officers near a ghat at Jeypore in Koraput district.

Later, cash of Rs 30,000 from his purse and the rest of the money from a bag kept in the car was seized by the Vigilance officials.

This was the highest amount of cash ever seized by Vigilance during interception of any public servant carrying unaccounted-for money.  

Mohanty was then arrested and forwarded to court. Further investigation into the matter was underway to ascertain the source of the huge sum of money.
