Srinagar, Dec 28, : Anti Corruption Bureau Kashmir Friday registered a case against revenue officials for their corrupt practices.
The registration of the instant case is the outcome of a verification conducted by this organization which looked into the allegations of Patwaris/Girdawars of village Balhama Khrew while preparing new Girdawari/Jamabandi (Record of rights) and who against huge pecuniary benefits have mentioned hundreds of kanals of Government land as proprietary land.
