Louis Berger: CBI to quiz 5 officers in Delhi

The Central Bureau of Investigation steps up probe into the Louis Berger scam which rocked Assam towards the fag end of the Congress regime where a New Jerasey consultancy firm bribed a circle of ministers and bureacrats for a multi crore water supply scheme in the premier north eastern city of Guwahati.


 


After collecting initial inputs, the country’s premier investigation agency issued summons five senior bureacrats to the New Delhi based headquarters for questioning.


 


All these five top bureacrats were holding crucial charges with Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority and Guwahati Development Department when the multi crore scam took place.
