Agartala, Nov 29 (TIWN): In a new twist, after a slumber of around two months of lodging FIR, police today arrested Panchayat Secretary Tushar Kanti Sen in front of the Rabindranath Degree College at Bishalghar, while two involved FIR named persons into Bishalghar multi-crore scam- Subir Ukil (Work Assistant) and Goutam Pal (Jr. Technisian) today surrendered before the SDJM court of Bishalghar, said a police official today.

All the three involved in the Rs. 50 crore MGNREGA multicrore scam of Bishalghar RD Block were produced before the SDJM Court today. Court sent jail custody to all the three involved persons tillMonday.

Subir Friday appealed for anticipatory bail before the Court but the Court has rejected his plea. As a result, Subir and Goutam today surrendered before the court. But police could not arrest 6 more FIR named persons even after a considerable period. According to the sources, police and the state government are well aware about the hideouts of 8 other FIR named persons involved into Bishalghar scam but they remained still at large as Melarmath is yet to provide green signal to police.

Earlier police had netted two close aides of scamster Bimal Chakraborty- Gram Rojgar Sevak (GRS) Shayamal Debbarma and Sarada Debbarma from a ganja (cannabis) plantation at Boxanagar area on November 15, in connection with multi-crore MGNREGA scam of Bishalghar block.

The 6 other FIR named persons are: Nibas Pal (Junior Mechanic), Kishore Kr Banik (Jr. Engineer), Partha Sarkar (Jr. Mechanic), Debaprasad Nandi, Gram Rojgar Sevak (GRS), Mita Malakar (Jr. Engineer) and Chayan Nandi (Technical Assistant).

According to the sources, police are taking special care of scamster Bimal in the name interrogation due to his close relationship with Melarmath. Recently the High Court of Tripura directed the Investigation Officer (IO) of Bishalghar scam case to appear before the Court with complete investigation reports on January 12.

The kingpin of Bishalghar multi-crore scam- Bimal Chakraborty had surrendered before the SDJM court of Bishalghar on October 23, under the direction of Melarmath following enormous pressure from public, different political parties and media publications. A section of public has marked the surrender of Bimal as a “got up” match between police and Bimal. Earlier, Scamster Bimal was suspended from the post of Deputy Director of ICA department by the state government.

It is to be mentioned here; in a press conference, Tripura Opposition Leader- Sudip Roy Barman had revealed all the special concealed audit reports on massive scam worth Rs 17 crore towards the public on September 18. Later, under instruction from top brass, the incumbent Block Development Officer (BDO) of Bishalgarh, Subrata Das, registered an FIR against his predecessor and incumbent Assistant Director of ICA Department on September 19, Bimal Chakraborty and 11 others, the source mentioned.

In a recent past, adding more woes to the CPI-M led state government, separate Public interest Litigations (PILs) were filed at the High Court of Tripura seeking CBI probe into the multicrore MGNREGA scam in Bishalghar RD block.
