Gurugram: It came as rude shock for hundreds of salaried working class of Gurugram after it was exposed that the amount deducted from the salary for the employee provident fund was not being deposited but was stolen.

On the complaint of deputy commissioner at the Shivaji Nagar police station, the Gurugram police has arrested the computer operator Omveer. His arrest and subsequent information have opened the can of worms and exposed that how brazenly Omveer was stealing money for a long time.
Omveer was appointed by the Haryana government as a computer operator on contract basis in 2011.

Following the complaints from the applicants that the money was not being deposited in the right account and the subsequent investigation by the DC office, the irregularity by the official was unearthed.
According to the police, Omveer has accrued over Rs 1.5 crore through
covert means.

He has been charged under sections 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducting delivery of property) and 409 (criminal breach of trust by the public servant) of the Indian Penal Code. We are investigating the case and trying to find out if more people are involved in the crime," said Inspector Ravinder Singh, spokesperson Gurugram police.
