Taking the final report on file, the Additional Chief Metroplitan Magistrate, Egmore here has ordered the appearance of the accused on August 28.
The prosecution case is that two employees, K. Venkatesan, Deputy Manager (marketing) and G. Jayashankar, Assistant in the marketing section, allegedly stole copies of the TNCSC letter to the Kerala State Civil Supplies Corporation Managing Director for disposal of the TKM-9 variety and the TNCSC statement showing the issuable and non-issuable stocks as on June 8 last year. They were allegedly responsible for publication of the documents in newspapers, sources in the special unit told The Hindu. A case was registered on October 31 following a complaint by the TNCSC Chairman and Managing Director.
The charge sheet has been filed for offences under Sections 381 (theft by clerk or servant of property in possession of master) read with 34 IPC (acts done by several persons in furtherance of a common intention). Both the accused obtained anticipatory bail. (The publication of the documents came in the wake of the allegation by the AIADMK Government, soon after it took over, that rice stocks worth Rs. 65 crores in the TNCSC godowns were unfit for consumption. The rulers charged the DMK Government with having failed to adopt proper storage measures, resulting in the rice getting spoilt).
