Kujang postmaster siphons off Rs 20L
KENDRAPADA: The postmaster of Kujang sub-divisional post office in Jagatsinghpur district has allegedly embezzled about Rs 20 lakh from saving accounts of depositors. The misappropriation came to the fore on Saturday after a depositor found Rs 2 lakh withdrawn from his account by doctoring his signature.
Postal inspector Dibyasingh Tripathy checked the ledgers and found the allegation to be true. "We are checking all documents in the post office. The postal authority will initiate necessary action against the postmaster. The depositors will get back their money soon," said Tripathy.
