The police raided the residence and other premises of Arvind Jain, attached to the women and child development department at Narsinghgarh, this morning and unearthed assets worth Rs 1.5 crore, which were disproportionate to his known sources of income, said inspector Atul Singh.

The anti-graft police conducted the raids after receiving a complaint that the officer had amassed unaccounted wealth, he said.

A preliminary inquiry revealed that there was some truth in the complaint and hence raids were conducted, Singh said.

Singh said Jain was posted in Sheopur for 15 years and transferred to Narsinghgarh six months back.

A car, two bikes, insurance policies worth Rs 10 lakh, 19 tolas of gold, 500 gm of silver besides documents of a house were found in his residence, the inspector said.
