A team of the State Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau carried out raids on the property owned by GD Thakur, Excise and Taxation Officer (ETO) with the flying squad in Solan, to investigate the reported possession of disproportionate assets.
The team raided a luxury hotel near Nadaun, owned by the ETO, and the house of his in-laws at Chowki village in the district. It also raided a few places in Chamba, Baddi and other parts of the state.
A case of the possession of property disproportionate to his income was registered against the ETO by the Anti-Corruption Bureau three days back. The ETO and his wife were stated to be absconding after the registration of the case.
The ETO was allegedly running a luxury hotel and restaurant near the Nadaun bridge in the name of his wife Meenu Thakur, which was being managed his relative Sushil.
State Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau Kangra district SP Pritam Thakur confirmed that the case against GD Thakur has been registered and raid was the part of the investigation.
