CIAA files graft case against NT officer for amassing property

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has filed a graft case at the Special Court (SC) against Anil Kumar Acharya, a senior technical officer at Nepal Telecom (NT), accusing him of amassing wealth disproportionate to his income property on Sunday.

In a press statement the anti-graft body said that it has filed case against Acharya as he was found to have accumulated property worth over Rs 7.9 million through illegal means after it carried out an investigation following a complaint received against him.
In the charge sheet, the CIAA has sought confiscation of a house constructed at Kathmandu Metropolitancity-8 and half of the house constructed at Kathmandu Metropolitancity-7 in line with the clause 47 of the Corruption Prevention Act-2002.

Acharya had entered into the services at Nepal Telecom (then Nepal Telecommunication Corporation) as supervisor on July 29 1981.
