Phulbani: By lifting the veil over a fake loot case after one month of its occurrence, police arrested an official of an English-medium school in Daringbadi area in Kandhamal district last night.
The accused identified as MD Nurali of Good Shepherd English Medium School was arrested on the charge of faking his own loot on April 3 in which he claimed of losing over Rs 5 lakh to unidentified bike-borne miscreants.
Informing on the arrest, the Daringbadi Police Station IIC and the Officer In Charge (OIC) in the case Srikant Khamari said, the accused was rounded up after police got significant clue establishing his involvement in hatching a loot plot.
“Nurali who works as a manager in the Good Shepherd English Medium School had planned the fake loot along with his wife and the principal of the school. While the accused has confessed to the crime, he had informed that the loot money has been kept at his West Bengal residence,” said Khamari.
“The accused has also claimed that he was getting very less salary and tried to meet some urgent personal expenses by the fake loot,” he added.
“Two Bajaj Pulsar-borne miscreants chased and intercepted me at a secluded place on the Highway. They later snatched the cash bag from me which was carrying school money worth Rs 5,23,933 at gun point. They also took away my mobile phone and gave me an ultimatum to leave the district within two days,” stated the FIR lodged by Nurali at the Daringbadi Police Station in connection with the case on April 3.
