Between the period 23.7.2011 to 17.11.2011, he received aforestated eatable items of control rate in different quantities for transportation, but instead of delivering the same at the scheduled destination Baghar, he embezzled a major chunk of those items for his own benefit. The matter was reported by the District Supply Officer to the Collector of the district mentioning the quantity of different items which did not reach to their destination Baghar and were allegedly misappropriated by the Contractor Harsh Singh. This way accused applicant Harsh Singh grabbed 257.14 quintals of different aforementioned items.
