Green House scam: Court summons 8 IAS officers


A special court in Guwahati on Tuesday issued summons to eight IAS officers to depose it on April 20 after the Government exonerated them in connection with the Green House scam in 2009.


The court further rejected the prayer of the investigating agency which had made prayer to discharge the 26 public servants. The eight IAS officers include Alok Khare, Gayatri Baruah, MC Brahma, KN Buragohain, L Phangcho, AS Tiwari, AK Bhutani and Hemanta Narzary.


The Government had earlier denied prosecution sanctions against these 26 public servants as sought by CM Vigilance Cell probing the scam, which had apparently made them immune to prosecution.
