Vigilance freezes bank accounts of OPHWC Dy Manager Pratap Samal

Bhubaneswar : In a recent development regarding vigilance raid on properties of Deputy Manager of Odisha Police Housing Corporation Pratap Kumar Samal, the bank accounts of his and along with his family members have been frozen after an amount of Rs 1.61 crore balance was seized.

According to reports, the relative standard deviation (RSD) value of 25 plots that have been unearthed is Rs 3.41 crore. The 5-storey building at Gothapatna which was in the name of his wife Sasmita Samal has been valued at Rs 3.89 crore.

Earlier on Tuesday, the properties of Samal were raided by the Odisha vigilance sleuths. During the raid, he attempted to hide off a stash of Rs 20 lakh cash by stuffing into a bag and throwing it into the nearby building.

He was found to own five plots and one building in Bhadrak district’s Basudevpur, 17 plots in Bhubaneswar, and two buildings in Khurda.

According to the Vigilance Department, the properties are located in Bhubaneshwar’s prime locations and the cost of a five-storeyed building there is Rs 3.89 crore.

Samal, who was born in 1968, completed his diploma in civil engineering from Barapada School of Engineering in Bhadrak in 1987 and joined the Odisha Police Housing and Welfare Corporation on August 14, 1988 as a junior engineer at its Bhubaneswar head office.

After being promoted to deputy manager in 2013, he worked at its Rourkela, Bolangir, Keonjhar, and Cuttack offices. Later, he returned to the headquarter in Bhubaneswar in 2019 and has been working there since then.

As the raids were underway, total valuation of his movable and immovable properties has not been completed yet, the vigilance officials said.
