Posting Of Tainted Official Cancelled After Intervention Of Governor

Jammu, March 13: Acting on a complaint lodged by employees Union of the Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre , Governor SP Malik ordered cancellation of the posting of former Director of the SKICC, Yasmeen Khan, who was posted as Chief Executive Officer Wullar-Mansbal Development Authority last week.

Khan was last year removed from the post of Director SKICC on allegations of large scale bungling in the SKICC. She was attached to the GAD after Excelsior exposed a multi crore scam in the SKICC in which she was involved. The Government ordered inquiry and a case was also lodged in Vigilance Organization (now Anti Corruption Bureau).

Khan was attached along with the Engineering Staff, for discreetly spent more than Rs 20 crores on unnecessary civil and electric works in the SKICC during 2016-2018. She had not followed the proper tendering procedure and a blue eyed contractor was allotted civil and electrical works for huge monetary benefits. The money was spent from the FDRs, which were meant for the pensionary and other benefits of the employees of the SKICC.

However, she was posted as Chief Executive Officer Wullar-Mansbal Development Authority vide Govt order No. 81-TSM of 2019 dated 09-03-2019.

Govt now rescinded her posting order issued vide Government order No. 81-TSM of 2019 dated 09-03-2019 on 13.09.2019 within four days but no actions on order issuing authority raises a question mark on the Governors administrations...?
