Khound alleged that Gogoi fraudulently made an order of paying Rs 10.29 lakh in the name of MACT member, who is also the district and sessions judge.

The FIR alleged that the accused forged the signature of the court administrative officer by showing that he was certifying the order of awarding compensation.
