The accused parties in this case have been identified as Chief Administrative Officer Bishwaraj Marasini, Accounts Officer Sarmendra Prasad Chaudhary, President of the Building Construction Committee of Janata High School, Ram Babu Prasad Yadav, Secretary Ramakanta Prasad, and Treasurer Kiran Devi Yadav.
The allegations against them pertain to financial irregularities during the construction of the Janata High School building in Simraungarh Municipality-8, Kachorwa.
