Santosh Kumar Jha, the alleged kingpin in the multi-crore flood-relief scam in Bihar, today surrendered before the court of designated Vigilance Judge J M Prasad following issuance of a non-bailable arrest warrant against him.
Jha went to the court on Wednesday morning and gave himself up.
On Tuesday Prasad issued non-bailable warrants of arrest against former Patna district magistrate Gautam Goswami and eight others, including Jha, proprietor of a printing press and another firm Baba Satya Sai Industries, allegedly responsible for swindling crores of rupees meant for relief during the 2004 floods.
Jha also urged the court to remand him to custody in connection with another vigilance case relating to irregularities in execution of literacy project in Katihar.
