The case:

As per the one conman Sandeep Rajput, who posed as a Class I executive engineer, set up six fake offices in Dahod in connivance with Ninama. They received over 100 contracts valued over Rs 18 crore, mainly tribal grants given by the government, which included performing irrigation-related tasks like installing taps and wells in people's homes.
The police said the scam took place between 2018 and 2023, when Ninama was first posted as the in Dahod district and even when he was later transferred as the District Development Officer in Porbandar.
They siphoned government grants meant for tribals by receiving the sum directly in the of the bogus offices.
