PWD Scam: Ex-Tripura CS sent to 4-day police custody


AGARTALA | Feb 19:

Former Tripura Chief Secretary, YP Singh, accused of being involved in the multi-crore PWD scam in the state, was sent to four-day police custody today.

It may be mentioned that Singh was produced in the court today. He was brought to Agartala today under Transit Remand after he was arrested from Gaziabad in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

As a part of the protocol, the Tripura police crime branch officials first took him to NCC police station and from there he was directly produced before the court.


Last year in October, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) MLA and former state Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Badal Choudhury and former chief engineer Sunil Bhowmik were also arrested in connection with the case.

On August 23, 2019, vigilance sleuths had quizzed Choudhury over alleged irregularities in the construction work and misuse of power during his tenure as PWD minister from 2008-2009.
