News of the day Thebuckstopper

The ACB had conducted search at premises of IAS Meghraj Singh Ratnoo in a disproportionate asset case following complaints of corruption.
The initiation of this case is probably from an lodged by Meghraj Singh Ratnoo's daughter Mahija Ratnoo against her husband and his family. It may be a coincidence but ACB got information about his disproportionate assets only after the FIR was lodged.

Mahija is an alumnus of IIM, Shillong while Samarth Singh is an alumnus of prestigious Scindia School and a law graduate from University. Mahija is currently pursuing PhD in management from Rawls College of Business in Texas, US.

Mahija in her FIR (copy of FIR is with The ) has recorded that Meghraj Ratnoo had spent money beyond his giving 2.5 kg gold, clothes worth Rs 20-22 lakh, 5 kg coins and other household items. The calculation of spending on her marriage goes beyond Rs 1.5 crore which ACB has also mentioned.

The marriage was lavish and functions were organised at Hotel Marriott and lawn of Entertainment along with expensive foreign liquors.

This admission of her daughter was a big proof of Ratnoo earning assets disproportionate to his 32 year service in administration.

On December12, 2018 Meghraj Singh Ratnoo's daughter Mahija got married to Samarth Singh, son Ashok Singh.
According to FIR, Samarth Singh and his family started torturing Mahija from day one of her marriage.

As per FIR, Samarth Singh's father Ashok Singh runs a seed business whose turnover is Rs 116 crore and he has a warehouse in Ahmedabad whose monthly rental is Rs 10 lakh.

Mahija alleged that her in laws have harassed her and threatened that they have relatives who are in strong positions in the government.
She said that her in-laws used to drop names of former IAS C D Arha and IPS Hinglajdan to put pressure on her.

The police is investing the case.
