BHUBANESWAR: An AGM-ranked officer of the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) was arrested on the charge of cheating a person to the tune of `20 lakh.
Bidyut Bhusan Jati (54) had taken money from Dillip Kumar Sahu to provide him a residential plot near Chandaka area.
Jati, a native of Bhadrak, is currently posted at Chhattisgarh as the AGM with the Central PSU. Sahu hails from Cuttack’s Banki area.
Police said Jati had taken the money from Sahu in three instalments between 2011 and 2014 for the land. He prepared forged documents to show that he owns landed property in Chandaka and handed over the same to Sahu.
Later, Sahu found the documents to be fake and lodged a complaint with Nayapalli police in this regard. On the basis of Sahu’s complaint, police arrested Jati.
