The ACB has filed a complaint with the local police in a case of alleged money-laundering by the Karnataka Maharishi Valmiki Scheduled Tribes Development Corporation.
According to the complaint, the accused used the façade of a government scheme to resell land at a higher price. In one case, the accused had requested release of Rs 8 crore under the scheme for Raichur district. Out of this, it is alleged that around Rs 56 lakh was diverted as a bribe.
