CBI team to visit BTAD areas

A CBI team will visit the violence-hit BTAD areas on Thursday acting on chief minister’s recommendation for a probe into the riot. Led by CBI Special Director and Joint Secretary (North East) at the Ministry of Home Affairs, Sambhu Singh, the team is set to hold discussions with the Assam Police officials regarding the cases related to the ongoing violence in Kokrajhar, Dhubri, Chirang and Bongaigaon districts which the investigating agency is likely to take over.

The state government has recommended 309 cases for investigation but the CBI may not be able to take over all the cases. It would therefore, discuss with senior Assam Police officials the sensitivities of the cases and identify cases having multi-state, multi-nation dimensions which they may take over for a thorough investigation.
