Kosi flood relief distribution fraud in Bihar lands government official in trouble

A fraud in Kosi flood relief distribution has landed a government official in trouble in Bihar's Supaul district.

As many as 286 cheques allegedly went missing from the office of the block development officer (BDO) of Chhatapur in the district.
At least 164 people have already withdrawn the money from banks on the cheques signed by BDO Braj Bihari Rajak, who was the disbursing authority. A total of Rs 52 lakh of the flood relief fund was reportedly fraudulently withdrawn from the Bihar government accounts.
