Berhampur: Vigilance sleuths have discovered properties worth over Rs 4.03 crore in possession of an assistant teacher of an upper primary school in Gajapati district. The belongings were found to be in the names of the accused teacher, his wife and their son.
During raids, officials of the department came across eight multi-storied buildings in different locations of Paralakhemundi and eight plots of land as part of immovable properties.
