‘Manipulation in fuel pump, no stock record’
Udaipur : Acting on a tip off on severe irregularities at the fuel station of the Roadways depot in Bara, the Anti Corruption Bureau sleuths held a sudden raid on Friday morning and seized documents. The authorities found manipulations in the fuel filling machine causing severe loss to the state exchequer. “ They had manipulated the machine so that the meter reading would show a high figure but the fuel filled would be comparatively less in quantity. The provision of daily inspection of the fuel station too had been overlooked” Chandrasheel Thakur, Additional SP (ACB) Kota told Udaipur Kiran.
The raid was carried out on the instructions by Kiran Kang, SP (ACB) Kota. The stock and daily inspection register was not proper and updated. There had been hardly one or two inspections in a month. When the ACB team interrogated Junior Engineer- Diesel and Manager (operations), they could not provide a satisfactory reply on the stock availability report at the depot. “ We have taken the documents for a detailed investigation, the depot manager was out of station who would be quizzed in the coming days which would give more details on the fuel scam” Thakur said.
