According to their submission, Gopidas Sinha taking advantage of his leadership in the community and also for being on the frontline of movement in the greater interest of the community displayed his power and authority and also his closeness with the authorities concerned in power for providing them the job of teachers. Amar Sinha, one of the complainants, said in his statement that he was convinced by the accused of arranging job for his two nieces and took from him Rs.2 lakh in cash. In addition to that, he also took Rs.1.55 lakh from one of his brother in relations on the same ground which was deposited in the personal SBI bank account number 20162429311 of Gopidas Sinha.

Considering the gravity of the allegations, the complainants demanded exemplary action against Gopidas Sinha so that swindlers like him dare not repeat his dismeanour. When the DSP made attempts to contact Gopidas Sinha over his mobile number 7576891441, there was no response. It is apprehended he might have gone underground. But, the police is determined to nab him and bring him to book and mete out the punishment as per legal provision.
