Bihar IAS officer missing after vigilance raids

An official from the vigilance bureau said Kumar went underground to escape arrest but will be arrested soon. “The bureau will issue a notice to him asking him to come forward.”

During the raids, the vigilance officials seized some files, documents and bank drafts. Kumar, the outgoing Patna Municipal Commissioner, came under scanner after complaints of irregularities surfaced in purchase of machine and equipment for his office.

“A team of the agency carried out raids on Thursday at his office in the Patna Regional Development Authority and his residence here,” an official said.
This was the second time that a team of the agency raided Kumar’s office. The raids were earlier conducted at his residence and office on Wednesday.
