Guwahati, May 24 (IANS): Two bank officials of Assam Gramin Vikash Bank (AGVB) were suspended on allegations of financial fraud in Jorhat district, officials said on Friday.

The allegations surfaced in AGVB’s Madhapur branch in Jorhat district. The suspended officials were identified as the branch manager Prashanta Bora and assistant manager Priyangshu Pallab Gogoi. Satyajit Chalihah, the treasurer of the bank was transferred from his post.

He was nabbed after a complaint was filed in the office of the anti-corruption branch.
