PATNA: The residential premises of a retired head clerk in a civil surgeon's office, Sukhdeo Ojha, was raided by the officials of Economic Offences Unit (EOU) in Muzaffarpur and assets to the tune of Rs 2.65 crore were unearthed. A case has been registered by the EOU.

Giving this information, ADG Ravindra Kumar said Ojha had joined government service in 1976 and later rose to the level of head clerk. He retired from service on March 31, 2013. During his entire service period, his income was calculated at Rs 78.54 lakh. Thus, his disproportionate assets are over Rs 1.85 crore, even as the value of his land and house is considerably undervalued. His assets are definitely beyond his known source of income, he said.

Kumar further said 24 bank accounts in the name of Ojha and his relatives have been identified. The documents seized from the head clerk's residence suggested that he had land in Kanti block of Muzaffarpur district which is valued at Rs 72.96 lakh. His other assets include a double-storied house at Khabra locality of Muzaffarpur worth Rs 20 lakh, Buddha ITI building in the same locality valued at Rs 50 lakh, a four-storied building housing a coaching institute in the town worth Rs 75 lakh and a flat in Ranchi worth Rs 20.94 lakh.

The movable assets of Ojha include Rs 11 lakh deposited in his bank accounts, a Bolero jeep worth Rs 6 lakh and a Hyundai Verna car costing Rs 7 lakh.

This apart, EOU has also caught a block education officer, Shivnandan Suman, of Simri Bakhtiyarpur for accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000 from a teacher, Balmukund Singh.
