CID filed Louis Berger progress report

Finally, the criminal investigation department probing the multi crore Louis Berger kick back scam have submitted its progress before the court triggering the speculation of yet another political storm. 

The state investigation agency on Thursday submitted the report at a sealed enveloped a couple of months after it was left red faced for inability to file a comprehensive progress report. 

Hearing a public interest litigation a few months back, the court asked for a progress report from CID which the agency failed to do. On Thursday,CID filed the report. 

The scam took place during the erstwhile Congress government where the Jerasy based company had to bribe a powerful circle in Dispur to ensure the award of contract of a multi crore water supply project in the capital city of Guwahati.
