CBI raids Engineer Ravish Kumar for disproportionate assets case

In the “assets more than the income” (disproportionate assets) case, the CBI raided the bases of the senior electrical distribution engineer of the railways. CBI confiscated lakhs of rupees in cash and a large amount of jewelry from the engineer’s residence in Patna and Biharsharif. Along with this, the CBI is also aware of the investment of millions in land and flats. After gathering all the evidence about Ravish Kumar, the CBI filed an FIR and made the move on Wednesday. During raids at several different locations, Rs 76 lakh in cash, investment papers in 15 different properties, banks, and other investment documents in other properties have been recovered from Ravish Kumar. Apart from this, jewelry has also been found.
According to the CBI, Ravish Kumar earned disproportionate assets during his posting in Railways from 2009 to 2020. He received one crore and four lakh rupees in this period from salary and other items. His wife’s income was about 40 lakh rupees. Together they both earned Rs 1.44 crore. Out of which he spent 67.41 lakh rupees. In this sense, their combined savings should have been 76.59 lakhs.
But the investigation revealed that Ravish Kumar misused his position and acquired movable and immovable property worth Rs 3.41 crore during the period. Ravish Kumar is accused of earning an additional Rs 2.64 crore during his job. Which is 183.40 percent more than the total income. CBI sources said that more evidence is likely to be found in raids conducted at different locations of Ravish Kumar in Patna and Biharsharif.
