Shinkja is being constantly attacked by the corrupt people in the country. The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has registered cases against 29 Gujarat government employees for disproportionate assets during the past 11 months. ACB officials informed about it on Monday.
The ACB issued a release on Monday, stating that out of these 29 employees, three are category one and eight are category two officers while the remaining 18 are in category three. The ACB said the total market value of the alleged disproportionate assets, including land and residential properties, is Rs 40.47 crore.

The ACB said it has launched a special operation to trace the benami and illegally acquired property. This action has been taken based on the information received after this.

The other accused are from Urban Development Department, Revenue, Irrigation, PWD, Gujarat Pollution Control Board, Police, Education, Forest and Environment, Health, Mining and Minerals Departments.
