The chargesheet was filed against Accountant of Finance Department Abdul Ahad Rather and six others including his son in the court of special judge anti-corruption Srinagar, a spokesman of the SVO said.

Rather, a resident of Drusu village of Pulwama district, was placed under suspension while he was posted in the first battalion of Auxiliary Police after SVO registered a case against him four years back for acquiring wealth disproportionate to his known source of income.

The case was registered against Rather on receipt of "reliable information" and during the course of investigation, the accused was found in possession of properties in the shape of a commercial complex at Dangerpora, a two storeyed house at Drusu and land at Pampore, huge cash savings and golden ornaments, the spokesman said.

He said six persons including his son Javaid Ahmad were found to have facilitated the preparation of the false and forged affidavits.
