Share post:


The Deputy Commissioner of West Garo Hills district, Mr G N Bhattacharjee, is conducting enquiry in to the alleged fraudulent purchases in the PHE Department’s Garo Hills wing involving an amount of Rs. 1.40 crores.

According to sketchy reports available from Tura, there have been prime facie irregularities in purchases of materials in three Divisions – Tura, Williamnagar and Baghmara.

In Tura Division the amount involved is Rs. 77 lakhs. In Williamnagar the alleged unauthorized purchases amount to Rs. 63 lakhs, while Baghmara contributes another Rs 17 lakhs.

The report said that the Superintending Engineer of Tura, who is in overall charge of these Division did not send any report to the Govt about these irregularities.

The Executive Engineers of Williamnagar and Baghmara Divisions are said to be in possession of recommendatory chits from the “top”. The Executive Engineer of Tura Division, however, has “destroyed” all the chits he had received in connection with the supplies.

Official sources here said that the Govt was awaiting the return of the PHE Secretary who has gone to Tura for gathering a first-hand report of the actual affairs.
