Agartala, August 19: In a significant breakthrough, Ambassa police successfully apprehended Nandan Rudra Pal, the prime suspect in the FCI godown rice scam at Jaharnagar in Ambassa sub-division, after an exhaustive search that spanned almost three months.

Authorities have indicated that Nandan Rudra Pal will be handed over to the court to face the legal consequences of his actions. This arrest represents a crucial step towards addressing the alleged misappropriation of vital food resources intended for vulnerable populations, such as those reliant on fair price shops and Anganwadi Kendras.
