After receiving several complaints, Madhya Pradesh’s anti-corruption monitor, Lokayukta special police establishment, conducted a series of raids at five premises linked to Aslam Khan, the accused and his brothers in Indore on Monday. Aslam Khan, a group D employee in Indore Municipal Corporation, was found in possession of Rs. 22 lakh in cash in addition to gold and silver ornaments, amounting to almost 70 lakh. Also, the sleuths seized 11 gold biscuits weighing 100 gm each and two luxury cars, as reported by Moneycontrol.


The Raid

The raid at Khan’s five properties was conducted under the supervision of SP (Lokayukta Indore) Dilip Soni. He told NDTV that “We have seized Rs. 22 lakh in cash and a huge amount of gold and silver jewellery from his possession. Besides, we have come to know about his 20 immovable properties, including plots and houses in Indore, Ratlam and Dewas. He also owns two luxury four-wheelers.”

Soni added, “Ten bank accounts in the name of his family members were also found. It is suspected that these bank accounts have huge deposits and process to freeze them is on.”

Reportedly, the Lokayukta Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Pravin Singh Baghel said they have found proof, including documents, that Khan owned assets worth over Rs 4 crore.


Background

As per reports, Khan was recruited in 1998 with a monthly salary of Rs 500. Now, he earns Rs 18,000 per month. “He is a labourer in Indore Municipal Corporation and is attached with its anti-encroachment squad,” the Lokayukta DSP Pravin Singh Baghel said.

The value of disproportionate assets may go up after detailed investigations, Baghel added.

New Indian Express has reported that since Khan was posted in encroachment removal and map clearance wings of IMC, he may have developed several contacts with various influential personalities, which led to these disproportionate assets. The anti-corruption squad is going to continue with the probe.
