Srijan Scam: CBI caught Rajni Priya, the main accused from Ghaziabad, absconding for six years in a thousand crore scam


Rajni Priya, the main accused in Bihar’s famous creation scam, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday from Sahibabad, adjacent to Delhi. Officials said Rajni Priya, secretary of Bihar-based NGO Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti (SMVSS), was on the run for six years in connection with the Rs 1,000-crore scam. CBI spokesperson said, the arrested accused is daughter-in-law of NGO founder Manorama Devi and secretary of the NGO and was absconding since the beginning of the investigation. He was declared a fugitive by the court.

conspired with the authorities

Declaring Priya a proclaimed offender, the special CBI judge had issued a non-bailable warrant against her. Officials said the agency has registered 24 cases since 2017 alleging misappropriation of government funds to the tune of about Rs 1,000 crore between 2003 and 2014 by falsifying records. The spokesperson said, the scam came to light after the death of Manorama Devi, the founder of the Bhagalpur-based NGO in Bihar. On the recommendation of the Bihar government, the CBI took over the investigation of the case. It was alleged that the officials of the said NGO had conspired with the officials of various banks including Bank of Baroda, Indian Bank and Bank of India to transfer government funds to the accounts of the NGO using forged documents. The agency has filed multiple charge sheets in the case in which several persons including a former district magistrate of Bhagalpur have been named as accused.

Government money looted by forging DM’s signature

In this scam, government money was diverted to the account of Srijan NGO. Preliminary investigation by the local police revealed that NGO officials bought checkbooks from banks and used forged signatures of district magistrates to transfer government money to their accounts. The CBI has alleged that through a conspiracy hatched between government officials and office-bearers of the NGO, there was illegal transfer and misappropriation of funds from government accounts to the accounts of the ‘committee’ in Bhagalpur district.
