The bail applications of suspended special land acquisition officer and prime accused in the National Highway 74 compensation scam, DP Singh, and another accused were rejected by the court of special judge (Prevention of Corruption Act) Kumkum Rani here on Tuesday.
According to information provided by sources, in his bail application, Singh had stated that he had allocated compensation to land owners according to the regulations. At some places, the compensation was provided at rates less than the land circle rate, resulting in savings amounting to crores of rupees for the government. The government advocate told the court that the scam in the compensation for widening of national highway 74 amounted to many crores of rupees with Singh being the main accused.
The court rejected Singh’s bail plea. Apart from him, Anil Kumar who was working as a Sangrah Amin is accused of making back-dated entries to show agricultural land of farmers as non-agricultural land in the revenue documents whereas this task is not done by an official on his post. The court also rejected his bail application.
