Properties of corrupt babus would now house schools in MP



Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh government has decided that confiscated premises of officials found guilty of corruption would be turned into schools or 'anganwadi' centres (nurseries for underprivileged children), as in Bihar.

The decision was taken by the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to mark the State's Foundation Day, official sources said on Saturday.

A special court for corruption cases at Indore had recently ordered confiscation of the properties belonging to a Regional Transport Office (RTO) clerk, Raman Dhuldhoye.

The order was passed as per the provisions of Madhya Pradesh Special Courts Act, 2011.

Dhuldhoye was found to own a farm house, 5.5 hectares of agricultural land, posh houses at different places and plots of land, among other things.
