Man detained on suspicion of embezzlement

Nov 25, 2010

Thimphu City Police have detained a 32-year-old man in connection with an embezzlement case.

The accused who works as a cashier at the Tashi Commercial Corporation had embezzled about Nu. 8.5 million belonging to the company.

Police suspect that he had added additional amounts on the cheque sent by his company to be deposited in the Bank of Bhutan. Later, during a reconciliation between the company and the bank, it was found that the person had not deposited the amount he had shown to the company.

The bank balance of the company therefore was lesser than what the accused had acutally claimed to have deposited.

Police suspect that the Nu. 8.5 million the person had embezzled was an accumulated amount over the last three years.

The man, who hails from Zhemgang has also confessed to the police that he had already lent out the cash to his friends.

The case is further being investigated.
