GUWAHATI: The BIEO (Bureau of Investigation Economic Offences) has arrested one Kuntal Hazarika alias Dhurbajyoti Talukdar in a bank fraud case.
According to reports, Punjab & Sind Bank zonal manager lodged an FIR at the BIEO on November 28, 2019, based on which a case (19/2019 u/s (B)/420/406/409/419/468/471 IPC) was registered.
The FIR stated that one Dhurbajyoti Talukdar took a loan of Rs 29 lakh from the bank to purchase a flat at Jonaki Path in the Kahilipara area. He had applied for the loan in December 2014 and later submitted an agreement stating that he has purchased the flat from Kuntal Hazarika.
Based on the document, the bank gave Talukdar the applied loan which was credited to the account of Kuntal Hazarika. The bank was unaware that Kuntal Hazarika was using an alias Dhurbajyoti Talukdar to get the loan. However, after Dhurbajyoti Talukdar failed to repay the loan, the bank lodged a case at the BIEO. After investigation, the BIEO found out that Dhurbajyoti Talukdar and Kuntal Hazarika is the same person. Later, two bank officials – Manager Nalin Kumar Hazarika and Loan Officer Bikash Chandra were arrested for grating the loan without verifying the agreement. Finally, Hazarika was arrested from Lakhimpur on June 20 and currently, he is in the custody of the BIEO.
