CRIME BRANCH LIKELY TO PROBE AGARTALA FLY OVER CORRUPTION CASE!

Even 48 hours after FIR lodged against two former Chief Engineers of PWD- Sunil Bhowmik and Soumesh Chandra Das and some official, the police could not start investigation process into the multi-crore corruption case- construction of fly over.

On Friday, a Dy SP of Vigilance organization had lodged an FIR against two former Chief Engineers and some officials of PWD and NCC Ltd under Prevention of Corruption Act. However, the police authority could not mind up, who will start the investigation into the high profile case.

Sources said, the case may be finally handed over to newly floated crime branch keeping in view of the vulnerability of the case. But Home department is yet to issue a notification asking crime branch to take up the investigation of the case.
Meanwhile, former PWD Minister Badal Chowdhury has demanded to publish the technical audit on the fly over works being carried out by Centre for Road Research Institute (CRRI).

"People of the state are eagerly waiting to see first Fly over is made operational and we (Left Front govt) did not take any chance in handling fly over works. Works were carried under the guideline of central government-run agencies", he told the media at Belonia in a query yesterday.

"It is good two central government organizations had carried out study on the fly over and submitted their reports to the government. An FIR was also lodged based on the report. Now, it is time the government to public the reports of two agencies’ report to clear the doubts", he added.
