State Bank of India Raipur, Nov 26 (IANS) Searches at the houses of a Chhattisgarh government official and of his bank locker have revealed that he has illegally amassed property to the tune of over Rs.6 crore, sources in the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) said Saturday.

“The ACB had raided the (residential) locations of R.K. Trivedi, an additional commissioner in the commercial taxes department, Friday and opened his bank locker Saturday. And after analysing all documents, the ACB has a view that the officer has disproportionate assets of over Rs.6 crore,” a senior ACB official who wanted his name be withheld told IANS.

He said that illegal property assets of Trivedi may cross more than the current estimated figure of about Rs.6 crore once the total documents and investment papers seized in raids are analysed. This may take about a week more.

The ACB team found gold coins worth Rs.3.66 lakh from the officer’s bank locker at the State Bank of India branch here. The officer has land plots in prime localities in several parts of the state, and also owns two petrol pumps and at least four luxurious houses.
