Additionally, five government employees, arrested by the Crime Branch for their involvement in the processing of fraudulent documents in a land scam at the Dispur Revenue Circle, have been sent to seven-day police custody.

The arrested individuals, who were apprehended on Tuesday, include Dipankar Kalita, a DTP operator at the Revenue Circle Office, Sub-registrar Niranjan Deka, land broker Himangshu Das, home guard Pankaj Das from the DC office, and Debashish Baruah from the record room of the Sub Registrar’s office.

A group of individuals, including Nitul Das, were presented before the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s office in Guwahati today after their arrest. Nitul Das was apprehended on November 23 as a result of a raid conducted by the Crime Branch at his residence.

The operation reportedly yielded many incriminating documents, approximately Rs 2.5 lakh in cash, and various land-related documents. In addition to these, multiple counterfeit seals, a TI book, and a volume registration book were also discovered.
