Guwahati: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday carried out raids at multiple locations in Assam including Guwahati in connection with a corruption case.
Sources said CBI sleuths raided the residence of ONGC Deputy General Manager (DGM) Dr Bijoy Kr. Shaw in Guwahati and Sivasagar in Assam. Dr Shaw is also an Orthopedist at ONGC Hospital in Sivasagar.
The CBI team also launched a search operation in the commercial premises of Dr Eashitiva Tamuly, proprietor of Kiran Physiotherapy Clinic in Jorhat.
The team also simultaneously conducted a raid in Uttarakhand’s Dehradun in connection with the case.
The anti-corruption Branch of CBI registered a case (No. RC-6(A) of 2023.) in Guwahati in connection with the financial anomalies in ONGC.
According to sources, during the search, CBI unearthed assets worth Rs 20 crore belonging to DGM Dr Bijoy Shaw. Seven houses and flats of Dr Shaw, suspected to have been amassed through corruption, were detected in Guwahati during the raid.
The value of the assets detected on Tuesday is much higher than what was mentioned in the FIR against Dr Shaw.
Sources said, Dr Shaw in collusion with Dr Eashitva Tamuly, contractual medical officer, occupational health, ONGC, Jorhat and Jadumoni Hazarika, proprietor of M/S Kiran Physiotherapy Clinic, Cinamara, Jorhat fraudulently generated requisition slip for physiotherapy treatment without the knowledge of retired beneficiaries of ONGC, health facilities and their dependents.
Jadumoni Hazarika, the proprietor of M/S Kiran Physiotherapy Clinic, had claimed false and bogus bills duly verified and certified by Dr BK Shaw.
Dr Shaw and Dr Tamuly issued requisition slips in the name of ONGC beneficiaries and dependents for a similar type of physiotherapy treatment for 14 days with two sitting on each day resulting in a fraudulent payment of Rs 19, 15,080 to M/S Kiran physiotherapy clinic by ONGC.
Requisition slips for physiotherapy treatment were even issued in the name of beneficiaries who had expired.
