Municipal commissioner Tukaram Munde on Friday suspended 4 more top civic officials. The order comes just two days after he suspended deputy municipal commissioner (property) Prakash Kulkarni.
The officers’s uspended are assistant municipal commissioners Sahebrao Gaikwad who is in Zone II, and Balkrishna Patil who heads the education department, office superintendent Balkrishna Patil and deputy accountamt Subhash Sonawane.
The suspensions have been based on an audit report on irregularities in Airoli ward office in the years 2012, 2013 and 2014.
According to a civic official, “A civic employee Pritam Patil was accused by the audit reports of committing fraud by not depositing NMMC money in the treasury. Gaikwad and both the Patils served as ward officers during these years and the documents had their signatures.”
He said, “Sonawane handled accounts. Hence all have been held responsible for the financial fraud.”
