Agartala: September 23. In a significant breakthrough, the Tripura Police have arrested the former panchayat secretary of Srinathpur village, Yamir Ali, nearly a year after he allegedly embezzled a staggering Rs 37 lakhs of government funds.

Police sources said that the arrest comes after an extensive investigation initiated by the Gaurnagar Block Development Office (BDO), Rameshwar Chakraborty.

“The incident unfolded in the fiscal years of 2016-2017 and 2019-2020 when Yamir Ali, serving as the panchayat secretary, purportedly siphoned off the funds meant for the pelassetting of thirteen bamboos and installing 20 Deep tubewell in the Srinathpur village panchayat area under Kailashahar in Unakoti district.  The irregularities were brought to light during a departmental audit, prompting BDO Rameshwar Chakraborty to file a formal complaint with the Irani police station on October 29 last year. Following the complaint, Yamir Ali was dismissed from his position”, said the cop.

The police further said that subsequently, the accused managed to evade the authorities, but was finally apprehended from the poultry market under Kailashahar Police Station.

“He was brought to the Irani Police Station for preliminary questioning before being forward at the Kailashahar court”, said Police.
