A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was today formed by Jammu and Kashmir Vigilance Organisation to look into allegation of accumulation of disproportionate assets by the officials of Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA).
“A three-member SIT under Deputy Superintendent Mushatq Ahmad Wani has been constituted to verify the allegation of accumulation of disproportionate assets by the officers/officials of LAWDA by misusing their official positions,” a spokesman of the organisation said.
