    This is only Preliminary account. God knows how much money he depositied in other foreign banks and real estates. Looks like while dying he is going to take all wealth. Government should distribute that wealth to poorest of the poor and needy people. Put him behind bars and give rigorous imprisonment.

    Check his Antecedents. His Qualifying as an IAS Officer must be probed, as he might have made someone richer to get to this post. What a shame! These Guys must be tried in the public and sent behind the bars for rest of their lives.
