Paramjit Singh, the broker in Education department of Assam was yesterday remanded in three-day police custody by a court in Guwahati. He was arrested by Dispur police in connection with a signature forgery case on August 10.

The accused Paramjit Singh is known to be close to Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. His importance could be felt in and out of the ministry and Secretariat. He was also seen beside the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma during the Assembly sessions. He was carrying a business out of his familiarity with the Education Minister.

Frauding the signatures of Education minister and the director of Education department, he was able to replicate an official letter of a tender of Rs. 15 crore of Education Department. He also took Rs. 30 lakh as bribe from the contractors.

Meanwhile, Paramjit Singh while getting arrested has said that he was arrested due to political pressure. He also alleged that his arrest was pre planned at the house of Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. He said that Pijush Hazarika, the president of BJP Yuva Marcha, Taranga Gogoi, Babli Sarma and Kamal Kalita were also present on the occasion. Paramjit said, Kamal Kalita ordered him to sign on a black paper in his (Kamal Kalita) gun point.

Police said that, as he is a criminal, his statements are not believable.

It is still undisclosed on the fact that how a common man made such political connections and acquaintances that helped him influence his illegal trade?
