MP IPS officer owns 50 acres land, 8 houses

Bhopal, May 15, 2014, PTI:

Madhya Pradesh Lokayukta police on Thursday carried out simultaneous searches at several residences and premises of IPS officer Dr Mayank Jain, and found assets disproportionate to his known sources of income, sources said.

Dr Jain, an orthopaedist-turned IPS officer, is presently posted as Inspector General, Community Policing at the Police Headquarters here.

Documents found during the raids revealed that he owned 50 acres of land, two nursing homes and eight houses, located across Bhopal, Indore and Rewa.

He was also found to be owning a 2,400 square feet plot at the Police Welfare Colony on Dewas road in Ujjain.

The Ujjain wing of Lokayukta police carried out searches early on Thursday in all the three cities, but the main focus was on his rented house in the posh Riviera township here.

“Further investigations are on,” Ujjain Lokayukta SP Arun Mishra said.

Sources said Jain was on the radar of the Lokayukta police ever since he was posted as Superintendent of Police in Ujjain a few years ago.

It is also alleged that he continues to practise as an orthopaedic surgeon.
