However as per sources this is just the start of anti-graft drive that both state and Union government are taking very seriously. It is being said that many other officers related to district authorities are under scanner and could be brought to justice in future.
Movement of such officials after this raid will also be tracked to catch any attempt of hiding their fortunes. Four bureaucrats of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been raided in last three days.
