KATHMANDU: The Commission for the Investigation for Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on Monday filed a case against eight staffers of the Swayambhu-based Agricultural Development Bank, including the then branch officer, at the Special Court on corruption charges.

They have been charged with embezzling around Rs 339 million. The anti-graft body has also charged branch officer Kedar Prasad Gautam, according to Pradeep Kumar Koirala, the spokesperson at the CIAA.

“Gautam has been charged against Rs 339.3 scam in which all eight alleged are demanded Rs 714.4 rupees each as penalty amount in the case,” Koirala said.

According to Koirala, Gautam is found to have forged documents while depositing a huge amount of money coming through remittance and later withdrawn the amount from different branches of the Agricultural Development Bank and other banks.

CIAA sources said he has also been found to have devised Tej Bahadur Thapa as the name for citizenship and passport.

He is also found to have abused the ‘Core Banking System’ and carried out other unlawful activities such as forging documents and abusing office information by staying long hours in the office.

Bharat Bahadur Baniya, the branch manager, has been alleged of failing to undertake the responsibility entrusted to him such as assessing financial transactions including remit, record cross checking, among others.

Samjhana Pokharel, Gautam’s first wife, Jeni Shrestha, his second wife, Suman Bhujel, Sandeep Gupta, Surya Bahadur Limbu, Krishna Hari Thapa are also alleged in the irregularities.
