CIAA raids Nepal Oil Corporation's regional office in Biratnagar
The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on Saturday raided the Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC)'s eastern regional office in Biratnagar, suspecting massive corruption.
According to CIAA sources, the raid was conducted following dozens of complaints that the NOC office was neck-deep in irregularities.
The NOC has been mainly alleged of cheating in weight, selling and supplying low quality petroleum products and extorting illegal money during inspection of the petroleum products.
A team of investigators was dispatched from the anti-corruption body's central office in Kathmandu to investigate the corruption allegations against the NOC. Nepalnews.com
