Police file charge-sheet against accused in infamous Bihar toilet scandal

PATNA: A Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the multi-million rupees-worth toilet scam in Bihar filed a charge-sheet against the accused persons on Sunday.

The scam involves fraudulent withdrawal of money from state treasury for constructing toilets by the NGOs in alleged connivance with the bank and government officials.

The chare-sheet which was filed against nine accused persons runs into 933 pages, according to the police. The case in this regard was registered in November last year with the Gandhi Maidan police station in Patna.

On November 16, the SIT had arrested the kingpin of the scam, Vinay Prasad Sinha, superintending engineer with the Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED).

Sinha is alleged to have siphoned off about Rs15 crore in alleged collusion with the office-bearers of seven NGOs in Patna, which were tasked with the responsibility to construct toilets.
