GUWAHATI: A poster warning Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and the state police found at Fancy Bazar.
The poster which was found at the Fancy Bazar in the state was written, "Himanta Biswa Sarma Sabhdhan Police, Gabbar".
The post had gone viral in the social media.
Earlier, the signature of Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma was scanned to create forged documents to get two work orders from the Public Health Engineering (PHE) department. This was disclosed on Monday to media persons by DCP, East Guwahati Police District (EGPD). He said that on September 8, 2021, an FIR was received from the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) which stated that a note had been given to the Chief Engineer (PHE) Water, Assam for work to be allotted in the name of Lohit Construction, a firm in Sivasagar, with a forged signature of the Chief Minister.
Accordingly, a case was registered in Dispur Police Station and investigated. Within few hours, Guwahati Police and Sivsagar Police picked up four persons connected to Lohit Construction and they were thoroughly examined. These four persons were Binit Poddar, Dipjyoti Dutta, Jaimini Mohan and Pankaj Gogoi. They revealed that they had come in contact with Imran Sha Chaudhary through the brother-in-law of Jaimini Mohan.
Imran Sha Chaudhary, kingpin of the crime, claimed that it would be very easy for him to get them a contract in the PHE Department through the CMO directly, but he would take 3 per cent commission. Imran Sha Chaudhary assured of getting them two contracts worth Rs. 3.16 crore, and thus demanded Rs 9 lakh as commission.
