MANGALDAI, Oct 4: The Crimil Investigation Department (CID) of Assam Police has started investigation into the alleged anomalies in the tendering process and allotment of works for a few schemes carried out recently involving several crores of rupees.

In this connection a CID team led by an Inspector on Wednesday visited the office of the Executive Engineer Water Resource Mangaldai Division and interrogated a section of senior officials and staff in this regard. The investigating team also visited Borkumarpara (Punia) village under Mangaldai Revenue Circle where a dyke was made to control flood water of river Noa at an estimated cost of about Rs 2.70 crore under SDRF 2015-16. However, few days after its completion, around 30 metres of the dyke was washed away on June 16 during the first wave of flood in this current year.

Meanwhile, talking to media, a CID official informed that following complaints that there were corrupt practices in the tendering process and allotment of works in the scheme, they had started the investigation and already directed the Executive Engineer of the Division to submit all relevant documents in this regard.
