RAJANNA-SIRCILLA: A Superintendent of Sri Raja Rajeswara temple at Vemulawada has come under the scanner for shifting Rs 1.5 crore deposits from one bank to another in 2016, causing financial losses to the temple.
Senior officials of the Endowments department have submitted a report to the government seeking action against the Superintendent I Jaya Kumari’s alleged negligence and misuse of official machinery.
With another year to go for the deposit to become mature, Kumari withdrew the cash from SBI Vemulawada branch and deposited it in the Deccan Grameena Bank, which provides a lower interest than SBI.
