Setback for CBI’s Saradha probe

Shankar Baruah’s “unfortunate death” is a set back for CBI probe into the Saradha scam where the former DGP was an accused. Barua, who shot himself to death on Wednesday, was an important part of the probe into the multi crore scam. According to sources, Barua played a big role to provide security to Saradha chief Sudipta Sen and his close associates. A former minister and Baruah had several rounds of late night meetings with Sen and one of his close associate mediated by Sadananda Gogoi who is in CBI custody. The conspiracy took final shap when Baruah met Sudipta Sen at the initiatives of Sadananda Gogoi---closed to Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma.
