Dehradun, March 17 (IANS): The Directorate of Enforcement (ED) has attached assets of Vardhman Educational Society for allegedly siphoning off government funds received under the SC/ST scholarship scheme, purportedly for personal usage.

The ED attached its immovable property in form of a land and building situated in Haridwar, Uttarakhand, under the provisions of PMLA 2002. The property is valued at about Rs 1 crore.

Vardhaman Educational Society runs Institute of Management Studies and IMS Institute of Technology, both at Roorkee.
