The anti-corruption bureau is not only fighting cases of bribes but is also keeping an eye on disproportionate assets cases. From three cases of disproportionate assets registered last year the ACB has already registered eight cases in the first five months of 2014.

According to statistics in 2013, a total of three cases were registered which included one politician and two government officers who had amassed a total of Rs 1.1 crore in disproportionate assets, which consists of movable and immovable properties.

During the first five months of 2014, the same figure stands at Rs 3.5 crore and all cases are against government employees.

Superintendent of police (ACB) Sarang Avhad said, "This year, most cases are against government officers working as engineers in the PMC, in the irrigation department, two policemen and the deputy commissioner of the sales tax department. Most people served for at least five years and some over ten years."
