US tracing Louis bribery probe in Guwahati

Amid growing blamegame over the Louis Berger scam between Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and former GMDA minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, a Canada delegation is on a fact finding visit to Guwahati on Tuesday.

The four member US team asked for a number of documents to cross check the bribery allegations against a section of ministers and GMDA officers. They are set to collect a set of papers to gather evidence of bribery in the crore rupee deal

It is learnt that the senior officials are examining the documents for ascertaining the kick back allegations. The scam took place twelve years back when the Canada-based firm was forced to bribe a section of powerful ministers and GMDA officers for a multi crore water supply project in Guwahati.
