    The ACB officials are revealing disturbing facts about the scheme, which was meant to benefit underprivileged sheep-rearing communities. The arrested officials bypassed instructions for procurement of sheep and involved private individuals or brokers in the process. They directed district joint directors/DVAHOs of the Animal Husbandry Department to help private individuals misappropriate government funds.
