Jammu and Kashmir State Vigilance Organisation (SVO) has filed a charge sheet before a local court against two government officials for misappropriating public money meant for widows, handicapped and old-aged persons.

The charge sheet was filed on Saturday in the court of special judge (anti-corruption), Kashmir.

"Vigilance organisation presented a charge-sheet in a case registered on July 18, 2008, against Rafiqa, the then junior assistant at tehsil social welfare office, Chadoora, and Manzoor-ul-Haq, the then associate executive manager of Jammu and Kashmir Bank, Chadoora," an official said on Sunday.

During the probe it was found that in 2006-2007, the accused hatched a criminal conspiracy by falsification of accounts and misappropriated Rs 16 lakh of public money meant for widows, handicapped and old-aged persons listed with tehsil social welfare office, Chadoora, in Budgam district of central Kashmir, the official said.
