Assam BJP leader arrested for promising jobs for money

Guwahati, Jun 2 (IANS): A local BJP leader in Assam's Hailakandi district has been arrested for allegedly duping people by promising them jobs in return for cash, police said on Friday.

Ansarul Haque Choudhury is a state executive member of the BJP's minority morcha in the state.

He was taken into custody by the police on Thursday evening in the Katlicherra area of the district. The police have been interrogating him to obtain further details.

Choudhury's social media profiles are flooded with pictures of him along with Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, cabinet minister Pijush Hazarika, and other top state BJP leaders.

He was often seen attending important programmes of the party in Guwahati.

According to the primary investigation, Choudhury earlier collected money from many people in his locality, promising them state government jobs, however, even after failing to keep his promise, the accused never returned the people's money.

Dilowar Hussain, a resident of Hailakandi's Natun Bazar who fell for Choudhury's false promises, filed a report with the Katlicherra Police Station under case number 91/23.

The police registered a complaint against Choudhury under sections 420, 406, and 468 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Additionally, the BJP leader is accused of stealing a total of Rs 7 lakh from Sahab Uddin, a resident of the Boalipar area in the Hailakandi district.

Two cases of bounced checks totaling Rs 4 lakh and Rs 3.9 lakh are also filed against him.

Reacting to the arrest of Choudhury, a district BJP leader said: "The matter is sub-judice, and I should not comment on this. If the allegations are true, then this is a serious matter. The state leadership will take a decision in this matter."

    This is BJP’s freebies. Arresting him is not enough. He should resign or CM Himanta Sarna should sack him then do the investigation. Manipur is already regretting electing BJP.
