Five persons including treasury officer Jagdish Chandra have arrested on Friday for alleged fraudulent withdrawals to the tune of over Rs 2.48 crore in the name of people who are dead, police said.

Those arrested also include Sohbat Singh, Kalpesh Bhatt, and Ranjit Kumar.

The case had been registered against the accused on Thursday, the SHO said. Tehri SSP Navneet Bhullar has announced a cash reward for the police team for arresting the accused within 24-hours of booking them.
