AGARTALA, Sept 25 (TIWN ): In the muliticrore RMSA scam serious question brought out on different issues. Firstly despite being on unauthorized leave the accused cashier of Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan, Arnab Chakraborty had succeeded to create a big scam in the Education Department.

Now the question arises how the higher authorities permitted him to attend the office on authorized leave? Secondly, on the other side during interrogation Arnab revealed that his wife and other relatives are stationed in Udaipur. Then what obstacle police had  in arresting them?

It is to be mentioned here that at the time of interrogation, Arnab told that from April he was on unauthorized leave, but at the time of scam he was on authorised leave. This raises the question on the higher authorities. He also told that the higher authorities prompted and encouraged him to withdraw money in the way of forgery. During his recent  withdrawls, Arnab has withdrawn two and half crore rupees. From that 1 crore rupees has been taken by him and the rest amount belongs to other three authorities. Though Police did not disclose the name of these higher authorities.

On the other hand, Arnab disclosed the fact in the interrogation that,  his wife, mother and mother-in-law are residing in Udaipur.With Arnab's info, police also succeeded to seize one crore rupees from the bank account of his wife Sangeeta Chakraborty and mother Kajal Rani Chakraborty. During last five months he had deposited more than one crore rupees in different private banks. Besides so many witnesses,  what obstacle police has from arresting them, is a matter of suspense now.

Arrest of School Education Department Cashier made it absolutely clear that the complaints that have been raised time to time by the opposition parties about the looting of Central RMSA funds by the organized corruption are absolutely true. Even many news items published about many scams and now. It is the responsibility of the State Govt to ensure proper investigation if some amount of transparency is still left. Police had already raided the house of Bishwarath Debbarma, Dilip Kumar Debbarma and Ambalika Dutta on account of the interrogation to Arnab. Besides that Arnab had links with the gangsters namely Shyamal Das, Suman Miah with whom he used to gossip near city center every evening. Recently it was discovered that Arnab started the phensydel business with his loot money from RMSA.

Meanwhile, sources in the Department said that Deputy Director Ambalika Dutta, who is currently under suspension over the purchase scam of books authored by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and former Chief Secretary Sanjay Kumar Panda, was closely involved with this scam which surfaced with Arnab was missing from the scene. Addl Director of the department D K Debbarma, Joint Director Manabendra Chakraborty and few other names had surfaced as investigation progressed, said the source. Howvever,involvement of other top officials, Education Dept bigheads like Secretary, Director and ruling party CPIM's Top leaders should be under scanner now. An ordinary cashier certainly cannot do this large size scam alone without blessings from godfathers.
