Following allegations of misappropriation of funds earmarked for various projects by the civic body made by six councillors, led by its vice president, Dharmendra Sharma, the local sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) conducted surprise checks at two workplaces and took down the statements of those working there.

He also held a detailed inquiry into the funds sanctioned for the proposed projects in the town's Bajuri area.

However, officials refused to divulge any details about the inquiry conducted by the SDM on Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Sharma and the other five councilors of the civic body met the assistant superintendent of police at the local vigilance bureau and filed a charge sheet against those managing the civic body's affairs, demanding registration of a criminal case against its president and executive officer.

However, though the civic body is being run by BJP members, the latter have not managed to stay united and have targeted one another during the body's meetings. There are also reports that senior BJP leaders have failed to bring unity among the party councillors. On other hand, the Congress party has not been able to hide its glee over the widening rift among BJP councillors.
