ITANAGAR: On March 31, 2023, eight persons were detained by the Itanagar capital police in Arunachal for a check fraud of Rs 9 crore.
A check for Rs 9,78,45,868 issued by NDMC was submitted to the SBI G extension branch for clearance in favour of a local business operated by one Tarh Tajuk, according to the information provided by SDPO Naharlagun.
A written complaint was filed at Naharlagun when it was verified that the check was phoney. PS. Dekio Gumja, SDPO Naharlagun, said in a statement to the media, "On March 23, a written FIR was received from the chief manager of SBI stating a person had come for a check clearance issued by the New Delhi Municipal Corporation. However, it was discovered that the aforementioned check was a bogus one after a cross-verification with the SBI, Delhi Branch, leading to the filing of the lawsuit.”
The Arunachal administration, on the other hand, has issued a reward of Rs 1 lakh for anyone with information on NSCN-K (NS) terrorists who have escaped.
Two militants from the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang), NSCN-K, broke out of the Khonsa jail in the Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. In an altercation with the militants as they attempted to stop them from departing, two police constables were gravely hurt, according to sources.
Wangnyien Bosai, one of the two injured police officers, passed away en route to the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH), Dibrugarh.
The two NSCN (K) militants, named as self-styled privates Rocksen Homchha and Tipu Kitnya, reportedly engaged in a violent altercation with the two constables who were on duty at the jail's premises at the time. The two extremists reportedly overpowered the two prison guards and stole their service guns before fleeing the area.
