Srijan Scandal: About Srijan Scandal, News and Photos on Srijan Scandal

In the heart of Bihar, an NGO called Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Limited, allegedly misappropriated an estimated Rs 700 crore of government funds by fudging records over the last ten years. The scam came into light after Srijan founder secretary Manorama Devi died earlier this year. Also known as 'Srijan Didi', Manorama shared close links with government officials, senior bureaucrats, bank employees, and businessmen. An investigation by The Indian Express has revealed how Manorama transferred funds to NGO's accounts through fake third-party endorsements and by using 'forged cheques.' The Bhagalpur police has so far lodged nine FIRs and arrested 12 persons in the case. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has also ordered a CBI probe into the scam.
