Three officials of the Karnataka Maharishi Valmiki Scheduled Tribes Development Corporation have been suspended, Deputy Chief Minister Govind M Karjol said on Sunday.

The corporation’s general manager S S Nagesh, assistant general manager Manjula and office superintendent P D Subbappa were found guilty of dereliction of duty under the Karnataka Civil Services rules.  A criminal case has been filed against them, the DCM said.  

The accused were allegedly buying land for a lower price under a government scheme and selling it at a higher price to realtors.
