MP JPF Scam: Fraud of 10 crores with employees through fake ID, police engaged in search of absconding jail guard

MP JPF Scam: There has been a stir among the government employees of Madhya Pradesh after the GPF scam came to the fore. After defrauding the employees of Ujjain’s Central Jail Bherugarh, one employee has gone missing. Disclosing this matter, the jail superintendent has complained to the police for action. Bherugarh Jail Superintendent Usha Raje told that since the year 2018, the process of wrongly withdrawing the amount of GPF was going on.

When this matter was noticed, he started keeping an eye on the jail guard Ripudaman Raghuvanshi working in the accounts department of the jail. After this, when closely examined by him, it was found that Ripudaman Raghuvanshi was misappropriating the GPF amount of the employees.

Rs 10 crore rigged 

For example, he told that when an application was received to withdraw an amount of one lakh 70 thousand, the employee withdrew Rs 17 lakh. In this way, an amount of ten crores has been embezzled from the district treasury. After this matter came to light, the jail superintendent lodged a complaint with the police. He told that the names of 8 employees have come forward on behalf of Ujjain Collector Kumar Purushottam while one employee Santosh Shukla has complained directly to the Jail Superintendent. The jail guard who rigged is absconding since this incident. The police is looking for him.

Long Process Faked Shortcut

Jail guard Ripudaman Raghuvanshi, who works in the Accounts Branch, fraudulently cheated crores of rupees by shortcutting the long process of withdrawing GPF. According to Jail Superintendent Usha Raje, the jail guards embezzled money from many employees without giving any application. He told that an application is given to withdraw GPF, which reaches the jailer through the inward-outward branch.

After this comes to the superintendent and then the notesheet goes to the accountant for eligibility. After this permission is given to withdraw the amount from the district treasury. Any employee is allowed to withdraw GPF within the prescribed limit, but without application, the accountant has withdrawn the money of many employees by making mistakes.
