Surprisingly, on that very day both of them had taken these documents to the residenceof then District and Xatra judge D. K. Dev Roy and had taken signature in some of the important papers. On the same day they also tempered some papers.

Based on the enquiry report Guwahati high court ordered on April 21 and Barpeta district and Xatra Judge L.C.Dey filed an FIR against the duo on June 4.
