Woman deposits public money into daughter’s account, gets seven-year jail term

A 63-year-old retired government servant has been awarded a seven-year jail term by a special court for depositing Rs 13.67 lakh of public money into her daughter’s bank account, using her as a ghost employee. Special CBI Judge Gurdeep Singh, who also imposed a fine of over Rs 15 lakh on CGHS staffer Neelam Sehgal, awarded five year jail term to her 77-year-old husband Jagdish Sehgal, himself a retired government servant, for being part of the criminal conspiracy in the offence.
