Jorhat DC office employee wanted in graft case nabbed

By Staff Correspondent

JORHAT, Jan 28 - Dipak Bora, a clerk who has been under suspension since July last year and works in the Deputy Commissioner�s office here for fraudulently withdrawing Rs 77.8 lakh from the district administration's account at the Central Bank of India�s Gar-Ali branch by forging signatures of Jorhat DC Roshni A Korati and Financial and Accounts Officer Bandana Devi (who is presently on leave) in six cheques last year, was arrested from Shirdi in Maharashtra by a team of Jorhat Police with support from Maharashtra Police on Saturday and brought here on Monday.

A police official stated that they also recovered Rs 23.5 lakh from the granary of Bora�s home at Pokamura Bezgaon under Pulibor Police Station on the outskirts of the city.

The money is suspected to be part of the amount fraudulently withdrawn by Bora, a former Senior Assistant posted at the Development Branch of the Jorhat DC�s office, during August 31 to September first week last year.

A local court before which Bora was produced by police sent him to 12-day police remand, the official said. Bora was wanted in Case No. 3620/2019 registered under Sections 120 (B), 409, 420, 419 and 468 at the Jorhat Police Station in December last year.

He was placed under suspension by the Deputy Commissioner on July 23, 2019 on charges of swindling over Rs two lakh deposited by candidates during Panchayat polls in December 2018 as security deposits.

It may be mentioned here that Dipak Bora was under investigation by police on suspicion of being involved in the mysterious fire that broke out in Room No. 55 housing the Development Branch in first floor of a building which is a part of the DC office complex, on February 19 last year. Several important files and computer sets got destroyed in the fire.

In two cases registered at the Jorhat Police Station in connection with the fire, Bora was suspected of his involvement in the incident and was granted anticipatory bail from the court which prevented police from arresting him, a police source informed.

In both these cases Bora was charged under Sections 436, 120 (B) and 386 of the IPC.
