DUPLEX bungalows, agriculture land, commercial and residential plots, a hotel and a hostel were among 25 properties a government official admitted to owning during a raid by the Lokayukta Police Thursday.
Though the Lokayukta Police refused to publicly evaluate the total worth of the properties owned by Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) Ravikant Dwiwedi , privately they said the market value at the current rate could easily exceed Rs 50 crore.
Dwiwedi was at his home in Gulmohar Colony in Bhopal when the raids were carried out at his residential and commercial properties in and around the capital. The senior revenue officer, who had joined the state administrative service in 1987, tried to throw his weight around and refused to cooperate.
