The Arunachal Pradesh police have arrested four state government officials on charges of their involvement in a land scam in Itanagar, said a police official.
The special investigation cell of Arunachal Pradesh Police arrested the state government employees on Wednesday in connection with the scam.
The arrests were made on Wednesday based a complaint filed by a person, who alleged that his plot of land at Chimpu-Hollongi Road in Itanagar was also allotted to someone else through unfair means by the four officials, SIC (Vigilance) SP Hemant Tiwari said.
“During inquiry, it was found that the Land Possession Certificate issued to them was for the same plot. One was issued by the LPC in 2016 and the other in 2019,” Tiwari said.
A detailed investigation is underway, he added.
