Case against Shiv Sena corporator for misuse of funds

The Ghatkopar police registered a case against a Shiv Sena corporator and 9 others for allegedly misusing BMC's Slum Rehabilitation Program (SRP) for personal benefits for a decade. Shubhangi Shirke, her husband and daughter, as well as 7 others were booked under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for cheating, forgery, extortion and criminal breach of trust on Wednesday after
an order from the Vikroli Metropolitan Magistrate court. An initiative taken by a Right to Information (RTI) activist Vilas Chavan revealed how Shirke had been allegedly pocketing most of the funds being allotted under SRP to her NGO Shubhagi Mahila Udyogic Utpadak Sahkari Sanstha. "The SRP contract was given in name of her daughter on June 1, 2000 to her NGO on the recommendation of Shirke, herself,' said Advocate Satyam Dubey, who represented Chavan in the Vikroli court.
