AGARTALA, Dec 5 (TIWN): Not a surprise, in the JUMLA era everything is possible and organizing Fake Award ceremony via professional frauds as Rakesh Debnath of Udaipur was the very beginning of the journey as Agartala Press Club’s self appointed Secretary Pranab Sarkar by shadowing Agartala Press Club’s name. The first fake award ceremony in Agartala Press club was conducted in 2018, June first week saying it is an annual award ceremony, a total fraud.

The person Rakesh Debnath who organized various fraud ceremonies earlier too is also is self awarded in many places and this unpopular boy often sends his fake award receiving programmes to various news channels for news publication.

Pranab Sarkar hired Rakesh Debnath for the award winning drama and maximum prizes were given to his own channel Headlines Tripura.

So, Pranab Sarkar consulted with this known crook, a fraudster Rakesh Debnath who is well known in Udaipur circles for his various fake medals, fake awards since a decade.

In June’2018 1st week, Pranab Sarkar and Rakesh Debnath planned to organize a FAKE National Award Ceremony, they named it ‘RPA National Journalism Award 2018’ Ceremony which was held on 25th June, 2018 at Agartala Press Club.

Pranab Sarkar utilized Rakesh Debnath’s expertise in arranging FAKE Award ceremony so that all parties are glorified.

So, Rakesh Debnath overnight turned Secretary & Convener of RPA National Journalism Award 2018’ and Rakesh’s another known accomplice in fraud from his Kolkata’s rented residence named Anup Bardhan acted as Secretary of this fictitious organization “Reporters & Photograpghers Association India”.

Next Pranab Sarkar and Rakesh Debnath identified all reputed Media outlets in Tripura and sent invitations announcing that they were chosen for RPA National Journalism Award 2018. Majority of those FAKE prizes were kept for Pranab Sarkar.

Surprisingly to make their FAKE National Award look authentic, they also selected TIWN (Tripura Infoway News) as Tripura’s best web media and sent invitation.

But TIWN Journalists did some background investigation and found that no such  organization “Reporters & Photograpghers Association India” registered in Kolkata, neither Association exists anywhere in Bengal or Tripura, or has any office other than mobile numbers of fraudsters Rakesh Debnath and Anup Bardhan.

Also  Reporters & Photograpghers Association India  has no office address, registration number or any past activities anywhere 

So, TIWN declined to attend the FAKE National Award Ceremony.

Also TV Channels like Vangard, Officials like S.Prabhu also didn’t attend this FAKE Award ceremony.

Rakesh Debnath’s FAKE National Award Ceremony is thus a chapter of shame in Agartala Press Club’s history.

About Rakesh Das’s reality, anyone may ask to any Udaipur based journalist or photographer and s/he will know about Rakesh's various fraud activities.
