Seized $1mn meant for NGO

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 7 � US dollar one million recovered from seven persons last evening was funded by the Finance department of the US Government towards Charity of Don Bosco, India, a non-government organisation, police sources said.

Preliminary investigation into the case apart from confirming the genuineness of the amount has further zeroed in on the involvement of more persons behind the act. Police today arrested all the seven persons including Ranjit Rangpi, the GMCH doctor, Subhash Biswakarma, Biju Ahmed, Nitu Baruah, Binoy Sarma, Moidul Islam and Jayanta Choudhury, who were later remanded to police custody by the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup.

Sources in the police department while talking to this reporter informed that though the right to liquidity was with Charity of Don Bosco, India, the arrested persons were apparently trying to liquify the amount in the name of the charity. �We would also investigate if any representative of the NGO was also involved. Ranjit Rangpi, the GMCH doctor, was one of the key members of the group,� the sources stated, adding that the group had a plan to dupe people by handing over the authentication letter.

�Further questioning is on in this connection to find out whether they had resorted to similar act before. In the meantime, we would also question the NGO in this connection,� the source added.

The seven persons, it may be mentioned, were picked up last evening from Shantipur area with the amount while they were about to hand over the same to a person.
