Shrivastava once allegedly asked his driver Rajesh Kushwaha (a daily-wage employee) to give him his ATM card so that he could help him get a loan that he needed. Kushwaha gave him his wife’s card but the loan never was never sanctioned. The card, however, remained with Shrivastava. When Rajesh visited his bank once, he was told by the bank staff that every month a sum of Rs 6,000 gets transferred in the account of his wife Preeti Kushwah and was withdrawn soon. When he inquired from Shrivastava, he dismissed him from the job. Rajesh said that his wife never worked anywhere for a salary and Shrivastava had used her name to get wages in her name and pocket it himself.
He further charged that Shrivastava has done it with a lot of people. When Preeti met Lokayukta Justice Gupta with the complaint he asked the special police establishment (SPE), Lokayuka officials to register an FIR against the officer and start investigation.
