Congress stages ‘Gherao’ at Guwahati CBI Office


The Assam Congress on Tuesday staged a protest outside the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) office in Guwahati demanding arrest of Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, accused of receiving Rs 20 lakh per month from Saradha boss Sudipta Sen for helping him run his business in Assam without hassles.

“The Modi-led government is misusing the CBI. Sarma had joined the BJP when the heat of the Saradha scam probe was increasingly becoming too hot to handle.” – Congress activists alleged.

In connection with multi-crore Saradha scam, CBI had raided his house and a news channel owned by his wife in Guwahati in August, With Himanta joining the BJP, the CBI probe against him on the Saradha scam slowed down considerably and apart from minor flutters, nothing major has happened that threatens his career.
