Warangal Engineers suspended on charges of misappropriation

Two engineers of Warangal municipal corporation (WMC) were suspended, while another surrendered to the government following charges of misappropriation of WMC funds to the tune of Rs 36 lakh.

Executive engineer Bitla Ramaswamy surrendered to the government on Tuesday, while P Kondal Rao and A Shivakumar were suspended by commissioner Vivek Yadav following a report prepared by superintending engineer Sridhar which stated that the three engineers misappropriated the WMC general fund, meant for carrying out repair works in Warangal, Hanamkonda and Kazipet.

TDP’s Rajya Sabha member Gundu Sudharani brought the matter to the notice of district collector Rahul Bojja at a recent meeting, after which Bojja ordered an enquiry into the swindling of funds by the engineers.
