Addressing a press conference here, Rana Goswami said, "The Dibrugarh police were also equally responsible for the suicide of Vineet Bagaria.

Repeatedly the family of Vineet Bagaria informed the police that they were getting threats but still police didn't take any action against Sanjay Sharma, Baidullah Khan, Nishant Sharma and Izaz Khan. If the police had taken action against them at the right time then, Vineet would have been alive today." "The home department and police were equally responsible for the suicide of Vineet," he added.

Goswami come down heavily on Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for dividing criminals. "Criminals are criminals before law. But Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is only taking the name of Baidullah Khan.
