Anti corruption officer transferred

The transfer and posting of a senior police officer, attached to the anti corruption cell has raised doubts over the Sonowal government's vision of a corruption-free society.

In a bid that evoked sharp reaction across the state, the government has transferred Mukul Saikia at a time when he was firmly dealing with a few sensational investigations. The senior IPS officer is known for his firmness' and submitted many fearless revelations in the past.

Of, late, he was heading the investigations of the multi crore scam social welfare scam apart from the cash for job scam in the Assam Public Service Commission. But suddenly the government issued a notification on Wednesday reposting him as border SP.

The erstwhile Congress government transferred him after he submitted a detailed list of the properties belonging to Rakesh Paul after he took the rein of APSC.

He was later brought back at the intervention of the court. But again he was sent from the anti corruption cell where a few sensational cases have been pending at a crucial stage.
