BJP MLA files police case against Gogoi
Guwahati: BJP MLA Pijush Hazarika on Tuesday filed a police complaint against former Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi for reportedly accusing Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma of being involved in a number of financial and criminal cases when he was a minister in his cabinet.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (Dispur) Sujit Saikia confirming the filing of the complaint, told PTI here that Hazarika has complained against Gogoi alleging that if the reported statements made by him at a press conference in New Delhi are true, then he (Gogoi) colluded with Sarma and saved him after he committed a series of crimes.
He said a case has not been registered as yet.
"It is kept for enquiry before registering the FIR ... It is difficult to register a case in Dispur police station because the original cases, which are mentioned in the complaint, were all registered in different other places. The investigation of those are on." Talking to reporters after filing the complaint, Hazarika told reporters that Gogoi had taken oath of office secrecy and for safeguarding the constitutional values after becoming the chief minister.
