Police claimed to have arrested a clerk of a non-government organization (NGO) for embezzling grant of Rs. 2.68-lakh meant for welfare of disabled persons.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Hardial Singh Mann said on September 3 retired Colonel Karaminder Singh, who was running the NGO for welfare of disabled, complained that clerk cum cashier Lal Singh, a resident of Kheri Gauria, misappropriated the above amount.
