Silchar Police has detained Silchar Medical College and Hospital’s (SMCH) former Superintendent, Dr AS Baishya on charges of being involved in a SMCH financial scam.
Allegedly, the Rs. 3 crore scam occurred during the period of 2015-2018, pertaining to which Baishya had been suspended from his designation.
The incumbent Superintendent, Dr Abhijit Swami had lodged a complaint against the scam and Dr Baishya.
It may be noted that fourth grade employees, namely, Premananda Singh, Pappu Ravidas, Bidyut Barman along with few others, who had been arrested earlier, are now absconding.
The then Chairperson Dr Shilpirani barman had also been transferred.
However, during interrogation the accused fell sick at the Silchar Police Station. Dr Baishya was admitted to SMCH at night while still in police custody.
Reportedly, Dr Baishya will be presented before the court today.
