Himalayan News Service

Bajura, May 30

The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority registered a corruption case against Badimalika Campus, Kuldevmandu, Bajura, at the Special Court in Kathmandu today.

The anti-graft body filed the corruption case saying that corruption took place under various titles in different fiscal years at the campus in collusion with Campus Chief Nabraj Jaisi and accountant Lal Bahadur Rawal.

The press statement issued by the anti-graft reads that corruption of Rs 3.7 million had taken place at the campus. The statement reads that fake bills were made under fixed titles and scholarship fund too was abused.

The CIAA has asked the court to collect over Rs 3.6 million from Campus Chief Jaisi and accountant Rawal as they had taken advantage unlawfully.

The CIAA has also registered a charge sheet against auditor duo Tilak Bahadur Thapa and Chet Bahadur Bam concluding that they had conducted audit based on fake receipts.

Badimalika Campus Management Committee Chairman and ex CA member Devraj Joshi, however, expressed ignorance about corruption. “The CIAA was investigating the campus. But, I have no knowledge that a case has been filed”, said Joshi.

Auditor Thapa said that they were not to blame as they carried out the auditing on the basis of available bills and receipts.

The campus was facing charges of financial anomalies for a long time.
