A special vigilance court on Wednesday ordered confiscation of the properties of former Bihar Director General of Police Narayan Mishra and his family members. Mishra,who served as DGP during RJD rule,has been facing disproportionate assets case of Rs 1.4 crore.
Mishra will challenge the vigilance court verdict before the Patna High Court. The state vigilance bureau had moved the special vigilance court for confiscation of the ex-DGPs properties on July 9,2010 after Bihar Special Courts Act,2009 became effective. This is the fifth case in which a vigilance court has ordered property confiscation under this Act.
The court of vigilance judge,Ramesh Chandra Mishra,on Wednesday ordered confiscation of a four-storey building at Ved Nagar in the name of the former DGP,an apartment block owned by his wife Kanchan at Digha,a plot owned by his daughter-in-law Rita at Medani Nagar and a plot belonging to Mishras relative in Hazaribagh,Jharkhand. The court also ordered freezing of the former DGPs Mumbai joint bank account.
Though the CBI has valued Mishras property at Rs 1.40 crore,it could be worth over Rs 10 crore as per the current market rate in Patna.
A special vigilance team had filed the DA case against Mishra on February 6,2007 for accumulating disproportionate assets between 1984 and 2007.
