Sentinel Digital Desk

Attention of the Superintendent of Police, CID, Assam is drawn to the news item published in The Sentinel on December 31, 2016 headlined 'Rupees 700 crore Agriculture Scam, APW:CID failed to submit prosecution fetter to court'.

In this regard the SP clarified that the news item is 'factually incorrect and baseless. CID has submitted a part charge sheet against the accused persons after receiving prosecution sanction from the government in the first phase of investigation of CID PS Case No. 56/2014. Further, Prosecution Sanction order is awaited in connection with other accused persons in the instant case. In another case in CID PS i.e. 57/2014 related with the lime scam of Agriculture Department, a part charge sheet against 33 persons have been submitted in the court and further investigation is underway.

In both the cases of Agriculture Department, the investigation is progressing under the close supervision of senior officers,' said CPRO, Assam Police in rejoinder issued on January 2.
