Jugdol massacre: Pranab Deka’s arrest imminent

Social welfare minister Akon Bora is set to land in a major trouble. The Gauhati High Court on Friday rejected an anticipatory bail plea moved by former Sonapur police station officer in charge Pranab Kumar Deka in connection with the Jugdol carnage.

Deka was accused of destroying evidence at the instance of the powerful minister. The senior police officer and his sub inspector probing the case got the house burnt down within 24 hours of murdering six members of a family two years back.

Deka is likely to be arrested at any moment by the special investigation unit of the CID. Deka’s confessional statement is likely to expose the minister’s alleged role in the case.
