Agartala, April 9: In a startling development on Tuesday afternoon, residents of the Kanakpur area in the Nurpur village panchayat of Kailashahar apprehended four individuals suspected of unlawfully collecting funds under the guise of an ashram. The incident, which took place near the Gokulnagar Amlan Jyoti Sevashram in the vicinity, raised concerns among locals regarding potential fraudulent activities.

According to eyewitnesses, the suspects, identified as residents of Dharmanagar and Kailashahar, were allegedly soliciting donations purportedly on behalf of the Amlan Jyoti Sevashram, presenting identification cards and donation receipts to unsuspecting passersby.
