The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Madhya Pradesh police on Thursday claimed to have unearthed illegitimate wealth of Rs 15 crore belonging to a civic official here who is local in-charge of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Rathore was the local in-charge of the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Union government's initiative, he said.
Indore was declared the 'cleanest city of India' in the Union government's survey in 2018.
EOW sleuths recovered Rs 20 lakh in cash, jewellery and documents related to properties which Rathore had allegedly purchased in the name of his daughter and other relatives, he said.
As per the preliminary estimate, his assets are worth around Rs 15 core, an amount hugely disproportionate to his known sources of income, the official said.
Rathore joined the IMC in 1995 and his average monthly salary is Rs 50,000, he said.
A case under the Prevention of Corruption Act was registered against him and further probe is on, the official added. The accused has not been arrested yet.
