May 30, 2005 22:55 IST

The Bihar Vigilance Bureau on Monday alerted airports across the country to prevent the possible escape of former Patna district magistrate Gautam Goswami and two other alleged kingpins of the multi-crore flood relief scam.

The bureau also moved a Patna court for securing arrest warrants against all the accused.

"We have requested the officials at the international and domestic airports and immigration check-posts throughout the country not to allow Goswami, his assistant Amitav Arun and Santosh Kumar Jha to fly out of the country," said Neelmani, additional director general of the bureau.

"We have furnished specific information, including identification documents and passport numbers of the three accused to the authorities of all domestic and international airports, besides immigration wing officials posted there to help facilitate their arrest and stop them from fleeing the country," Neelmani told PTI. 

"The step has been taken apprehending that some of the accused may leave the country on getting to know the registration of the first information report," he said.

He added that the court was also being approached for impounding the passports of Goswami and others.

Director General of Police Ashish Ranjan Sinha said he had requested his Uttar Pradesh counterpart to direct the police in Lucknow to help assist the vigilance team that is already camping there to arrest Goswami.
