The special court (anti-corruption) will hear anticipatory bail petitions filed by 13 engineers on July 5, after it has been postponed from June 22.
Altogether 13 engineers, under the Public Works and Power & Electricity department, had filed petitions for anticipatory bail as their names had figured in an Anti-Corruption Bureau’s investigation into the alleged corruption in Kau-Tlabung mini hydel project.
Anti-corruption organisation Prism in October 2008 had submitted an FIR to the ACB against suspected irregularities in the Tuipanglui and Kau-Tlabung mini hydel projects, reported UNI.
According to the Prism’s complaints, power & electricity department stated that the Tuipanglui had been completed by 2000 and the Kau-Tlabung by 1999, besides a revised estimate was made on 2001.
Moreover, the department’s statement on the cost of equipment used in the mini hydel projects differed from time to time, Prism alleged.
‘’There has been a clear misappropriation of public money on these two hydel projects. Therefore, we demand the ACB to initiate a probe,’’ Prism’s FIR stated.
Sources said, the ACB has completed its investigation but it is yet to make chargesheet, adding the engineers have applied for anticipatory bail on medical grounds.
