5 yr RI for corrupt DFO

GUWAHATI:A local court in Guwahati on Thursday ordered five year rigorous imprisonment to a corrupt forest officer three months after he was arrested on graft charges.

He is none other than Mahat Talukdar, the District Forest Officer in Dhemaji whom the chief minister's anti corruption and vigilence cell caught red handed accepting graft.

The special court which convicted him under the Prevention of Corruption Act has imposed him ₹45 lakh as fine in two cases registered against him.

He was caught three months back and the vigilance cell seized crores of rupees in cash from his office chamber and residence.
