SIT extends operation to nab former officials implicated in RGPV fraud

Bhopal: High-ranking police officials are closely overseeing the ongoing probe into the alleged financial misconduct totaling Rs 19 crore at Bhopal’s renowned Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (RGPV).

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) is encountering difficulties in locating the fugitive ex-officials, including former Vice Chancellor Sunil Kumar, former Registrar RS Rajput, and former Finance Controller Rishikesh Verma. Authorities strongly suspect that all three individuals have fled Madhya Pradesh and may be hiding in other states.

The trio, accused of financial impropriety, absconded following the filing of a case against them at the Gandhi Nagar police station in Bhopal.

Law enforcement teams are presently conducting searches across four states, withholding the state names to maintain operational secrecy. With lookout notices issued and cash rewards announced, investigators express optimism about soon capturing the suspects.

Meanwhile, the state government-appointed committee tasked with conducting a thorough investigation into RGPV’s financial irregularities has yet to convene formally to outline its investigative strategy. The delay is attributed to the absence of a financial expert within the committee.

Committee members await the government’s appointment of a financial specialist to kickstart the investigation process.
