The branch manager of the Samabai Samiti, who lodged the police complaint, stated that his cashier Bonti Mili (Tayeng) with the help of field assistant Dipanjali Doley (Das) and collection agent Mausumi Doley (Pegu) had misappropriated more than Rs 1.30 crore out of the credit deposit by maintaining fraudulent financial statement.

Reliable sources informed that the prime accused Bonti Mili (Tayeng) has approached Gauhati High Court for anticipatory bail and accordingly the High Court has called for the case diary (CD). However, police are yet to receive any official correspondence in this regard from the Gauhati High Court till Saturday evening.
