CBI books Congress leader and former Arunachal Pradesh CM Nabam Tuki on corruption charges

Nabam Tuki was Minister of Consumer Affairs and Civil Supplies when the scam took place

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today booked Congress leader and former Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh Nabam Tuki for allegedly indulging in corruption in awarding contracts worth Rs 3.20 crore for a government project in the year 2003. Tuki was the CM of the State during 2011-16.

The CBI alleged that the former CM who was the then Minister of Consumer Affairs and Civil Supplies had, in collusion with his brother Nabam Tagam, siphoned off illegal money received in lieu of contracts granted worth Rs 61.43 lakh and 2.60 crores for developing a couple of parking places in Nirjulee and Naharlagun in the State.

Nabam Tuki’s brother Nabam Tagam, N N Osik, the then director civil supplies, and Sohrab Ali Hazarika, the then chief manager of the United Commercial Bank have also been booked by the CBI. Osik had allegedly paid an amount of Rs 30 lakh which was credited in his account in Itanagar branch of the United Commercial Bank. It is alleged by the CBI that the cheque was initially issued in the name of Tuki and was later changed to ‘yourself’. The CBI has booked all the accused for criminal conspiracy, forgery and under the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Hazarika had allegedly helped in getting the amount credited in Tuki’s account without obtaining any authorisation for altercations made in beneficiary detail in the cheque. The name of the account holder in the bank was also tampered with. The name was replaced with T Nabam in the specimen signature card and a picture of Nabam Tagam was placed on it.

It was revealed during the inquiry conducted by the CBI that the account was in the name of Nabam Tuki and his signatures were found on the account opening form.
