The Anti-Corruption Branch of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a chargesheet in the court of special judge in Guwahati against the branch manager of Central Bank of India and three others for embezzling Rs 7.84 lakh on three false horticultural projects.
The case numbered RC 18(A) 2008-GWH was filed on June 26.
According to a CBI spokesman in Guwahati, Motilal Basumatari, manager of Central Bank's Dimakuchi Branch in Assam, had 'entered into criminal conspiracy' with Hemanta Deka, Tarun Daimary and Amal Daimary to release a subsidy of Rs 784,350 for three false projects under a scheme named Development of Commercial Horticulture through Production and Post-Harvest Management.
The subsidy was released on the basis of false sanction of term loan and joint inspection of the projects submitted by the accused public servants, thereby causing wrongful loss to the bank, the spokesman said.
The chargesheet was submitted after completion of investigation charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating and falsification of document were proved, he added.
