APSC chief and former City SSP were instrumental in hiding information regarding a car stolen from Joypur in 2011: RTI activist Dulal Bora

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, April 28: Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) chairman Rakesh Paul and then Guwahati SSP AP Tiwari, an RTI activist claims, have too many skeletons in their cupboards. The activist alleges that Paul and Towari are involved in car lifting and their arrest will lead to the revelation of a much bigger car-lifting racket. Tiwari is now Tinsukia SP.

RTI activist Dulal Bora, who filed a case (405/15) against Paul and Tiwari at Bashistha police station on April 24, 2015, said: "If MLA Rumi th can be arrested by the police for her alleged links with car lifters, there shouldn't be any hesitation on the part of the police to arrest Paul and Tiwari. They were instrumental in hiding information regarding a car stolen from Joypur in 2011."

"It goes that an Innova car (RJ14UA3631, engine No. 2KD9751234) was lifted from Joypur on July 18, 2011. The owner of the car, Babulal Saini, filed a case at Mansorobar police station in Rajasthan. The car was seized by the police at Jalukbari on November 15, 2014 with its number changed to AS16D3688. The ownership of the car was changed mysteriously to one Gautam Kumar Jowadwar," the RTI activist said, and alleged: "Jowadwar is a kin of Pal. And Pal requested then City SSP Towari not to file any case in that connection. Paul even reminded Tiwari of his wife appearing in the APSC examition. Tiwari's wife came out successful both in the prelimiry and main examitions conducted by the APSC."

Dulal Bora further said: "Jowadwar sold the car to Abdul Mazid, who, after coming to know that it is a stolen car, filed a case (493/14) at Gorchuk police station in Guwahati."

If the police are really interested to book all car lifters, the RTI activist said, they should immediately arrest the APSC chairman and the IPS officer.
