Return ill-gotten compensation or face action, warns Arunachal CM

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday asked those who have illegally received land compensation for a highway project to return the money to the government or face legal action.
Attending the Nyokum festival of the Nyishi community at Pitapool in Lower Subansiri district, Khandu said corruption in any form will not be tolerated.
“I request those who have received payment for land compensation without having any land to return it before police arrive at their doors. I announce here today that the state government is serious on this point,” he said.
A section of people allegedly in connivance with government officials, were paid compensation for giving land to the government. (PTI)
