The Enforcement Directorate (ED), Jammu, today attached movable properties in the form of bank balances to the tune of Rs one crore related to some of the accused, including mastermind Yatin Yadav, in the police sub-inspector recruitment scam in Jammu and Kashmir, the agency said.

The agency wrote on X: “ED, Jammu has attached movable properties in the form of bank balances relating to accused Yatin Yadav, M/s New Global Fumigation Corporation, Prop. Yatin Yadav and his associate Lokesh Kumar, to the tune of Rs. 1 Crore (approx.) under the provisions of the PMLA, 2002 in a case relates to paper leak of examination conducted by J&K Services Selection Board (JKSSB) for the recruitment of 1200 Sub-Inspectors of J&K Police, against monetary benefits by the accused Yatin Yadav and others”.

The Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) conducted the examination in March 2022 but the selected list of 1,200 candidates was cancelled by the government following allegations of paper leak and malpractice.

The CBI, which was handed over the case, filed its chargesheet against 33 accused, including Yadav from Haryana, in November 2022.

Subsequently, the ED, Jammu, registered a case against the accused under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
