BJP suspends Dibon Deka

Guwahati: Caught in a grim controversy,  state BJP has suspended Dibon Deka a day after police arrested the party leader in connection with the police recruitment scam. 

In a statement issued in Guwahati on Thursday, the party made it clear that nobody would be spared and that Deka has been suspended for 6 years.  

Deka's  suspension assumes significance at a time when party leaders denied him to be a party member.  Party president said Deka was not a party member even after the party fielded him in 2021 in Barkhetri. 

Hemanta Biswa Sarma also said that he has not seen Deka in party office for the last 6 years. 

Deka, one of main accused was arrested last night minutes after he surrendered before police in Pattacharkuchi. 

A team of CID has got Deka in their remand to be grilled in this connection.
