NAGDA (UJJAIN): The ongoing police investigation in to the misappropriation of money under Kisan Credit Card (KCC) scheme by officials of a private bank and agent was raised in state Assembly on Thursday.

Congress MLA from Nagda – Khachrod assembly constituency Dilip Singh Gurjjar raised issue in the Assembly during Zero Hour along with the delay in deposit of crop insurance premiums by the bank.

MLA Gurjjar made the Legislative Assembly aware about how officials and agent of a private bank cheated innocent farmers and withdrawn over Rs 2 crores from their KCC account without their knowledge.

Despite the farmers complaining to the Nagda police, the mastermind in the case is still out of police net.

The role of Dilip Vyas and other officials in this case is also doubtful as some farmers had informed the bank manager and other officials about the disappearance of the money between December-January, but they were told that this kind of problem has occurred due to server problem. It is clear from this that some other officers are also involved in this, he added
