GUWAHATI: A lady BJP leader was detained by the police in Diphu, Karbi Anglong, for defrauding people out of Rs 1.52 crore on the same day that the Assam government was planning to distribute almost 45,000 recruitment letters in Guwahati.

The alleged offender is a secretary for the BJP's Kishan Morcha in Karbi Anglong (East), and her name is Moon Engtipi. Nevertheless, she was shunted out on leave after being detained in connection with the incident.

With promises of jobs and other perks, the accused siphoned off Rs. 1.52 crore from a number of people. However, she did not stand by her pledges, and the individuals who gave her the payment went to the police.

She allegedly claimed to be in intimate contact with both the KAAC CEM and the Assam Chief Minister, the "victims" told the media.A police official stated that an inquiry into the incident is ongoing.

Ingtipi is accused of extorting around Rs 9.52 crore from these helpless people up until this point who were desperate for employment.

On the basis of the victims' complaints, the police later detained Ingtipi. Additionally, it has come to light that Ingtipi had pretended to be the chief minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, and the chief executive member (CEM) of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council, Tuliram Ronghang, in order to demand money from the victims.

As a result of the event, Ingtipi's employment as the BJP's Kisan Morcha's secretary was terminated.

Last month, a con artist in Guwahati preyed on an elderly couple by withdrawing more than Rs. 7 lakhs from two different accounts that belonged to the pair. Residents of Guwahati's Geetanagar neighbourhood make up the victims.

The husband, named as Dinesh Chandra Dutta, received a message from a unique unlisted number warning that the line will be turned off if they didn't pay their electricity bill within the next five minutes.

In the message, they were warned that if they didn't pay Rs. 100 to recharge a phone number, the electricity line would be severed. The phone line was instantly recharged, but they later discovered that their savings had been taken from their bank accounts.
