Dhubri, June 16: Depositors of Jivan Suraksha, a money networking institution at Tamarhat in Dhubri district, demanded the arrest of officials based at the Tamarhat finance and money networking office, which allegedly closed down without making payments after maturity.
Depositors alleged that the branch manager of the office, Bablu Sheikh and agent Rezaul Hassan had collected huge sums of money from depositors but since the closure of the office last year, there had been no sign of the money.
When the depositors spotted Hassan at Auxiguri village on May 30, they demanded their money back. When Hassanís family members came to know that the depositors had caught him, they rushed to the spot and beat up the depositors, one of them alleged.
Noor Mohammad, one of the depositors who was seriously injured, was admitted to Dhubri civil hospital. His wife lodged an FIR against 13 people involved in the attack.
The OC of Tamarhat police station, Subhas Das, said two of the accused in the FIR were arrested, four were found to be absconding and the rest obtained bail from court.
The depositors said owing to criminal cases against Hassan and his family they have almost lost hope of getting back their money.
ďA criminal case has been filed against those who attacked Noor Mohammad on May 30. We are looking for the four people accused in the FIR,Ē Das said.
