The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday unearthed suspected ill-gotten assets worth a whopping Rs 12 crore, including about Rs 1.6 crore in cash, 17kg gold worth about Rs 8.5 crore and bank balance to the tune of nearly Rs 2.5 crore from a retired railway official in Odisha.
The CBI had on January 3 registered a case against Pramod Kumar Jena, the retired Indian Railway Traffic Service (IRTS) officer of 1987 batch, for allegedly possessing huge disproportionate assets (DA).
Surprisingly, the value of the assets recovered on Tuesday is much higher than what was mentioned in the FIR against Jena.
The central probe agency had verified Jena’s assets from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2020. During the same check period, the CBI found Jena and his family members (wife and two daughters) owing movable and immovable properties worth Rs 4.33 crore
