CHATTOGRAM: A junior auditor of the accounts department of Bangladesh Railway (East Zone) was arrested on Saturday night on charge of embezzling Tk 1.5 crore through forgery.

The arrestee was identified as Faisal Mahbub.

Sources said Faisal embezzled the amount through forging the process of payment of salary of the employees since the beginning of the last year.

He used to transfer the money to his own account instead of the fixed account of the department. The Railway Deputy Financial Adviser Md Shahjahan lodged a written complaint to the Chief Finance and Accounts Officer Kamrunnahar in this connection on Saturday.
