Aizawl court convicts Tripura man in graft case

Aizawl: Special Court (Prevention of Corruption Act) in Aizawl convicted Subhrendu Deb Roy S/o Shirish Chandra Deb Roy, resident of Dharamnagar, Tripura Jail Road in graft case on Monday.

Special judge HTC Lalrinchhana, while pronouncing the judgment said, “Subhrendu Deb Roy is convicted under section 409/471 read with 120-B IPC and under section 13 (2) r/w 13 (1) (c) and (d) of PC Act, 1988 read with 120-B IPC. However, due to insufficient evidence, he is acquited under section 420/468 IPC.”

Lalrinchhana fixed the date for sentence hearing on Tuesday and sent the convicted person to jail with bail bond, if any, being cancelled.

Roy, a retired Telecommunication department official, was booked by the CBI for giving undue favour to K. Sena (L), proprietor of M/s Southern Repairing Works in Aizawl by awarding him the work of laying of over-head cables in Aizawl town during 1995-97 in violation of all relevant rules and regulations at exorbitant rates much higher than the departmental approved rates thereby causing financial loss to the Telecommunication Department to the tune of Rs. 8,56,112.

Criminal charges against K Sena and another co-accused – Krishna Brata Som was dropped as he was already dead while another accused Swapan Kumar Bose was exonerated for want of evidence against him.

The court also found Roy, while holding the posts of Sub Divisional Engineer (Planning) and SDO (T) from December 1993 till May, 1996 under Telecommunication Department in Aizawl, guilty of forging quotations of five local firms.
