Official sources said here on Friday that the chief minister had also recommended the confiscation of their properties in a case of disproportionate assets registered against them.

Chouhan sanctioned the IAS couple's prosecution after an Empowered Committee of the General Administration Department (GAD) headed by GAD principal secretary Abha Asthana submitted its report to him.

The Lokayukta had also sent a report to the state law department seeking sanction to prosecute the two IAS officers under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Income Tax officials had raided the official residence of the Joshi couple at Bhopal in 2010 and recovered over Rs. 3.5 crore cash and documents related to huge properties and other valuables disproportionate to their known sources of income.
