According to the DSP of the Lokayukta office in Indore, the officials have also opened a case in accordance with the Prevention of Corruption Act at the Lokayukta police station in Bhopal.

Anand Yadav, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Lokayukta Indore, stated that the anti-corruption wing of the Lokayukta conducted raids on various residences of Mineral Officer Manmohan Khatedia (at present posted in District Dewas) on Tuesday and recovered properties worth more than 3 crores. Khatedia is currently posted in District Dewas.

According to the DSP of the Lokayukta office in Indore, the officials have also opened a case in accordance with the Prevention of Corruption Act at the Lokayukta police station in Bhopal.

According to the officials, the team from the Lokayukta has located multiple properties belonging to Manmohan in a variety of locations across Indore, including in the Tulsi Nagar Colony and the Mahalaxmi Nagar neighbourhoods. In addition to District Dhar, properties can also be found in Jhabua and Ujjain.

During the preliminary inquiry, it was determined that the stolen property had a value of more than three crores of rupees. DSP Anand Yadav stated that in addition to homes, certain properties, commercial plots, two luxury automobiles, and a stone crusher facility were discovered in his son’s name during the investigation.

“In addition to this, three and a half lakh rupees were seized in cash,” the DSP Yadav said.

During his interview with ANI, Yadav stated the following: “During the investigation, it was established that the value of the property found is several times higher than the government income of Manmohan.” He was given the position of Mineral Officer in 1991, and since that time, his salary has reportedly been somewhere in the neighbourhood of one crore 25 lacks. However, during the course of the preliminary investigation, it was discovered that he possesses property with a value of more than three crores.
