Ex-Medical Superintendent of PGI Raipur booked for Rs 50 Crore Fraud

Former CM Raman Singh’s son-in-law Puneet Gupta, who was in the government service, once worked as the superintendent of the state-run DKS Hospital (PGI Raipur) here.

Raipur: The son-in-law of former Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh was booked for allegedly committing financial irregularities to the tune of Rs 50 crore during his tenure as the superintendent of a state government hospital here, police said.

Singh’s son-in-law Puneet Gupta, who was in the government service, once worked as the superintendent of the state-run DKS Hospital here.

Gupta was booked for forgery and cheating based on a complaint by the incumbent superintendent of DKS Post Graduate Institute and Research Centre Raipur (or DKS Hospital or PGI Raipur), Kamal Kishore Sahare, at the Golebazar police station, Raipur Additional Superintendent of Police Praful Thakur told PTI.

In his complaint, Sahare alleged that during his tenure as the superintendent of the centre, Gupta and others had committed financial irregularities to the tune of Rs 50 crore and caused a huge loss to the state exchequer, he said.

The government had received complaints pertaining to appointment against rules in the hospital, following which an inquiry committee was constituted, Thakur said, quoting the complaint.

Later, the committee submitted its findings to the government, which revealed Gupta had allegedly misused his position and committed fraud of Rs 50 crore, the complaint said.

Gupta and others were booked under section 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant), 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, Thakur said, adding that further investigation was underway.

The names of other accused were not mentioned in the complaint and they are part of the investigation, he added.

Gupta was shifted as the officer on special duty in the Raipur Medical College after the Congress government took charge in December last.

Last month, he had resigned from the service after a case was registered against him by a Congress leader in connection with the alleged fixing of the Antagarh assembly by poll held in 2014 during the previous BJP regime.

    I WISH IN OTHER STATES ALSO THE CROOKS WHO FREAKED OUT POWER POSITION AND POSTS ARE PUNISHED IN THE SIMILAR MANNER . SPECIALLY THOSE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF CASTE, COMUNITY , CASH , REGION AND RELIGION AND POLITICANS& BABUS THE BUEROCRATES SUPPORT. THESE CROOKS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EACH AND AVAILABLE AVENUES , INCLUDING POCKETING THE ADVOCATES , COURTS BY DELAYING COURT PROCEEDINGS OVER THE YRARS. EVEN JUSTICE THAKUR AND JUSTICE MARKANDEY EXPRESSED THEIR CONCERN ABOUT SUCH UNDUE DEALYS. STARTING FROM APPOINTMENT OF JUDGES , KEEPING THE JUDGES POSTS VACCANT , THE RESPECTIVE GOVERNMENTS , PLAY ALL SORTS OF NASTY GAMES. THE NEWER POLITICANS SHOULD LOOK INTO SUCH ISSUES , INSTEAD OF BUSY IN BLAMING AS OPPONENTS AND GETTING TOGETHER AS A PARTNER OF CONVINCE. ( GHATBANDAN – GHATA BANDAN – GHOST BANDAN ).

    This is the same good old story since, may be ages ! The corrupt always thrive in this country of ours where these thieves vouch for integrity and honesty . The tragedy is that those who work silently with utmost honesty and truth are always sidelined and regarded as \’Bechara kuchh kar nahi saka !\’ More over there is a competition in this country to prove /disprove who all are nationalist / patriots! Let us try sincerely to earn our living with truth and honesty , then only people can say that we are patriots/nationalists.

    And they say private medical colleges are not maintaining integrity! The amount of embezzlement of public funds and irregularities by Government Medical Colleges, including temporary transfers of faculty during MCI inspections, is anyone\’s guess. Take the case of Vyapam for instance – still unresolved.
