Former Goa Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) SP Priyanka Kashyap has moved the Goa Lokayukta praying that the Suo Motu proceedings initiated against her in the disproportionate assets case against Cumbarjua MLA Pandurang Madkaikar be dropped.
Lokayukta Justice Ambadas Joshi will hear on 22nd December the application filed by Priyanka Kashyap who is currently Deputy Commissioner of Police in Delhi.
Former Lokayukta Justice P.K.Misra on 15th September last year while directing the ACB to register an F.I.R against Pandurang Madkaikar had in his 15 page order observed that SP Priyanka Kashyap had entirely failed in discharging her duty in accordance with law.
Stating that appropriate punishment was required to be imposed on SP Priyanka Kashyap, the Lokayukta directed that Suo Motu proceedings be initiated against her for gross dereliction of duty.
Adv.Aires Rodrigues on 7th June 2018 had filed a complaint with the Lokayukta over the inaction of the ACB in probing the complaint filed by him against Pandurang Madkaikar.
Pointing out that Pandurang Madkaikar’s Nikitasha Realtors Pvt Ltd had on 1st April 2017 inaugurated a huge palacial bungalow at Old Goa estimated to have cost around a whopping 200 crores, Adv. Aires Rodrigues in his complaint had demanded that the ACB register an FIR under Sections 13(1) (d) & (e) of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 and Section 120-B of Indian Penal Code against Pandurang Madkaikar and his wife Janita Madkaikar the Sarpanch of Old Goa and to speedily investigate the case.
