    RAIPUR: An assistant engineer employed with the water resources department in Chhattisgarh has assets woth Rs.70 million, Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials claimed Thursday.

    "The ACB sleuths raided two locations -- Raipur and Baloda Bazar town -- of the assistant engineer Purshotam Agrawal and seized several documents yesterday (Wednesday)," D.M. Awasthi, additional director general (ACB), told reporters here.

    "We are analyzing the documents and so far we found that the official has amassed assets not less than Rs.7 crore (Rs.70 million)," said Awasthi.

    He stated that the exact amount, earned through disproportionate sources of income, may go higher once the ACB completes the analysis of all documents seized in raids.

    Awasthi said the engineer had invested the most of his money on land purchase and bungalows in prime locations in Raipur and Baloda Bazar town, some 100 km from here.

    He had started as a sub-engineer in 1980 and was promoted to the post of assistant engineer in 1993.

    According to the ACB officials, the engineer had made majority of the investments in the real estate sector after 2005.
