By Express press service

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Museum Police filed a petition with the Thiruvananthapuram Chief Judicial Court on Saturday seeking custody of the four people arrested in connection with the building number fraud at the Municipal Corporation. Police are expected to take them into custody on Monday to officially open the investigation.

Cyber ​​Police, who were investigating the case, arrested four defendants – two temporary employees of the company’s office and two agents – following a complaint by Mayor S Arya Rajendran. They are currently in custody. On Friday, cyberpolice officially handed over the case to Museum police.

Museum Police Inspector PS Dharmajith said the investigation will start on Monday and more truths about the case will come to light after the suspects are questioned. The main defendant in the case, Ajayaghosh, is on the run and police have started efforts to find him. “We have received the file from the cyber police. First, we will interview the suspects. We will also start tracing Ajayaghosh. It is learned that the city corporation’s internal audit committee found a similar fraud in 12 other neighborhoods under the boundaries of the corporation’s area offices. These irregularities will also be investigated,” he said. At the same time, the investigation by the company’s internal audit committee is also ongoing.

Sources said further action would only be taken by the civic body after obtaining the police report. The civic body also alleged the involvement of more of the company’s office workers in the fraud.
Recently, the internal committee found out that a similar fraud also happened in Kunnukuzhy district.
In the district of Kesavadasapuram, it was discovered that the fraud was committed by an agent. On July 4, the municipal corporation discovered that two data entry operators, appointed as temporary employees, had misused the usernames and passwords of certain officials in the revenue wing of the corporation to illegally assign numbers to various buildings in the city.

Two day laborers were fired as a result of the scam. The fraud was eliminated by illegally using the “Sanchaya” software, which is officially used to provide numbers to buildings. Two commercial buildings, owned by Ajayghosh, from Marapalam to Kesavadasapuram, have been given the number. The scam took place on January 1 of this year. It was also found that one of the two computers used by the data entry operators was used for the fraud.
