Lokayukta raid: Three engineers released

The trio — Executive Engineer Narasimharaju, Assistant Executive Engineer T S Lokesh Kumar and Assistant Engineer Santhosh Kumar — were arrested after the Lokayukta sleuths found property disproportionate to their known source of income.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Lokayukta in-charge SP Sadanand Varnekar said that the seized property is yet to be valued.

It may be recalled that the Lokayukta sleuths had found 10 blank cheques from the engineers after contractor Haji Hameed filed a complaint against the engineers that the officers had taken his cheque book and pass book and the they were withdrawing money as and when they need.

Some unindetified miscreants gained entry into a house and decamped with property worth Rs 85,000 at Vas Lane in Mangalore.
The house belonged to a certain Mohammed Fayaz Pahad. The stolen articles include Acer Aspire Laptop, a Rado watch, gold ornaments and Rs 5,000 in cash.
