People asked one by one. DSP Pankaj Kumar Rawat has been suspended in the sand case, DN Paswan said. Prior to the suspension, there was an SDPO in Ara Sadar. A case of disproportionate assets has been filed against him in the EOU. In this case, the evidence is being sought as per the court order.
EOU claims of unaccounted assets
The team claimed he had unequal assets. On condition of anonymity, a team official said that Pankaj Kumar Rawat’s horoscope was also checked during the investigation into the sand case. Evidence was gathered by interrogating people from all the places they were posting. Meanwhile, the names of several relatives and friends who used to deal with Pankaj Rawat have also come to light. Although nothing was found in the hills during the investigation, some evidence will certainly be found in the coming days. Authorities claim to have found evidence of property in Faridabad, apart from two shops at Shatabdi Mall in Saguna Mor, Patna, and a house in Pataliputra.
