Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The case was registered against project head of STL Suvesh Pahwa and manager Anoop Slathia and others for preparing a forged document — an agreement dated October 6, 2016 with the intention to put complainant Mohammad Ayoub Khan, a resident of Surankote area of Poonch, to huge financial loss, a spokesperson of the Crime Branch said.

He said they sublet the said work to another contractor by way of making forged documents in violation of the agreement.

A written complaint was lodged by Khan, a contractor, in Crime Branch, Jammu, alleging that BSNL had allotted work for providing and laying of underground network for spectrum (NFS) cable in Rajouri to Messrs Sterlite Technologies, a business partner of Messr Ericsson, who further allotted the contract for an amount of Rs 60 lakh in his favour by virtue of an agreement, the spokesperson said.

He said the complainant took over the assignment to execute the allotted work but unfortunately the accused demanded an amount of Rs 1 lakh as commission for releasing payments, as the complainant had incurred approximately Rs 55 lakh for execution of work.

The accused managed cancellation of the said work order and re-allotted it to Qayoom Hussain Shah in clear violation of the rules and regulations of the company and causing huge loss to the complainant, the spokesperson said.

On receipt of the complaint, he said Crime Branch Jammu took cognizance by initiating a preliminary verification and established that the complainant was actually defrauded by the accused in violation of the agreement.

“The case has been registered and the investigation has been set in motion,” the spokesperson said.
