BHUBANESWAR: The CBI on Wednesday searched the properties of Barada Kanta Mishra, a former director of the Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT), in Goa and Odisha to detect income disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Mishra, who is currently the director of IIT Goa, served at IMMT Bhubaneswar from April 2006 to August 2016.

The searches were conducted at multiple locations in Goa and Odisha. According to the CBI, Mishra amassed disproportionate assets worth Rs 1.14 crore during his 10-year stint at IMMT.

An enquiry was instituted to verify the income and expenditure of the former IMMT director. It was detected that assets worth Rs 1 crore were not satisfactorily accounted for by him, following which a case was registered, a senior CBI official said.

On Tuesday, CBI had registered an FIR against Mishra under Sections 13 (2) and 13 (1) (a) of the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act. The sleuths conducted searches at IMMT campus and Mishra’s residence in Bhubaneswar and specific locations in Panaji and Ponda in Goa, the official added.
