NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday registered four more cases in connection with Srijan scam.

The case was registered against eight persons, including former bank officials and Bhagalpur-based NGO Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti officials.

The accused were charged under criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust, cheating and forgery of valuable security.

The scam involves an alleged transfer of government funds worth about Rs 1,000 crore to the accounts of a non-government organisation.

The Srijan scam involves Srijan Mahila Vikas Sahyog Samiti Ltd, which used to provide vocational training to women.

The NGO allegedly pilfered funds meant for government welfare schemes from the bank accounts of the Bhagalpur district administration.

The alleged fraudulent took place between 2004 and 2014.

As per information, the NGO used to forge the signature of the district magistrate on the chequebooks procured fraudulently from banks and transferring huge funds.

The scam came into light after the death of NGO founder Manorama Devi in February 2017, which led to the differences among the family members.

People who had taken loan illegally from the NGO began to default in payment.
