The special vigilance court on Thursday ordered the confiscation of assets of motor vehicles inspector Raghuvansh Kunwar, who was dismissed from service two years ago, an official said.

His property includes a four-storied house in Patna. Kunwar was allegedly caught accepting a bribe of Rs 50,000 in Aurangabad district on September 24, 2008.

During investigation, officials found a huge amount of unaccounted wealth with him. His other properties include a plot in Patna, a house in Chaira, gold biscuits, jewellery, a jeep, Rs 1.94 lakh in cash and investments worth Rs 8 lakh.

The Bihar government has so far confiscated houses of nearly half a dozen officials, including a former police chief.
