Former Minister’s Son, Ex-JDA Officials Booked by ACB in IT Park Approval Scandal

The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Tuesday registered an FIR against Hilal Rather, son of former Jammu  and Kashmir minister Abdul Rahim Rather, in connection with alleged irregularities in granting permission for the construction of an IT park in Jammu.

A former vice chairman and former Chief Town Planner (CTP) of the Jammu Development Authority (JDA) have also been booked in the case.

The CBI had previously filed a charge sheet against Hilal Rather in 2020 in Rs 177-crore bank ‘scam’ in Jammu.

The ACB’s case, filed under the J&K Prevention of Corruption Act and Section 120-B RPC (criminal conspiracy), names the officers and officials of the enforcement wing, the former Chief Town Planner, the former Vice Chairman of the JDA, and beneficiary Hilal Ahmad Rather, an ACB spokesman said.

The case was the result of an investigation into allegations that the JDA had unlawfully approved an IT Park’s construction for Rather using a backdated site plan for a three-story building, despite knowing there was no legal provision for such a construction, he said.
