Minister for Roads and Bridges, G Kaito Ayeh informed the state assembly that investigation by the Vigilance Commission into the Nagaland Road Development cases during 2006-2009 has been completed. In a written reply to Congress MLA, T. Sentichuba, the minister admitted it was a fact that during August 2008 prosecution sanction was sought from the government to prosecute the erring government officials including a commissioner and secretary and another Chief Engineer. When asked to table the reasons for no-follow-up action by the government so far, in spite of non-implementation execution of work, gross procedural lapses/violation and recovery of cash and other deposits amounting to few crores which were detected, the minister said that the request of Vigilance Commission for prosecution sanction was being examined by the state government in consultation with the advocate General of Nagaland.
