Bandipora, Jan 16: Authorities in Jal-Shakti department in northern Kashmir’s Bandipora district Monday constituted a three member committee who have been tasked to probe the alleged scam of water pipes in Ajas area of the district.
Executive Engineer, Jal-Shakti division Bandipora, Syed Fida Hussain Razvi said that a three member committee was constituted to probe the alleged water pipes scam in the ajas area. The committee will submit its report within two days following which further action will be taken if anyone found guilty, he said.
According to reports at least 500 water pipes of the department have been sold by the local panchayat body of the Ajas in connivance with local Jal-Shakti employees.
The locals said that the administration had sent these pipes for the different water supply scheme for the area, however, the local panchayat body here along with the local Jal-Shakti officials have sold these pipes which is unfortunate and should be looked into by the administration.
Strict action should be taken against those who have sold these water supply pipes so that such incidents do not happen again,” they added.
