FIR against Gautom Roy

Cachar district returning officer has filed an FIR against senior cabinet minister Gautam Roy alleging violation of poll code in Silchar which goes to bypolls on Saturday. Acting on a complaint of open cash distribution to voters on behalf of the Congress candidates, the returning officer lodged the complaint on Thursday. The authority has further served him a showcause notice. Two BJP leaders, Muktar Abbas and P.K. Das moved the Election Commission on Tuesday in New Delhi submitting a video clipping of Roy distributing cash among the voters.
