The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a disproportionate assets case against Hanif Shaikh working as the social security officer at the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC),
Patto Panaji.

As per the CBI, information was received from reliable source that Shaikh working as social security officer ESIC Panaji during the period from January 2005 to February 15, 2021 allegedly through corrupt and illegal means amassed disproportionate assets both movable and immovable in his name and in the name of his
family members.

According to the CBI during the check period (January 2005 to February 15, 2021) the accused allegedly amassed disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 57,95,004 which is 94 percent of his total income and 554 percent of his
likely savings.

Considering the income of Rs 61,55,613 during the check period and the expenditure of Rs 51,10,570 the accused should have likely savings of Rs 10,45,043. However Shaikh is found to have amassed assets worth Rs 68,40,047 in the name of self and family members during the check period, said CBI adding that the accused is in possession of disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 57,95,004 which is 94 percent of his total income and 554 percent of his likely savings which he cannot satisfactorily account for. Thus Shaikh intentionally enriched himself illicitly during the period of his office, said CBI.
