The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday carried out searches at 22 locations including the homes and offices of two former Assam ministers — Himanta Biswa Sarma and Anjan Dutta —in connection with its probe in alleged swindling of investors’ deposits by Saradha group.

CBI sources said searches were conducted at 12 locations in Guwahati, two in Dhubri, Assam, seven in Kolkata and one place in Mumbai in connection with the scam.

Those whose premises were searched in Thursday’s operation included former Assam Ministers and MLAs Himanta Biswa Sarma and Anjan Dutta, former DGP of Assam Shankar Baruah and singer Sadananda Gogoi.

Mr. Sarma was a powerful minister in Tarun Gogoi Cabinet since 2001 but was dropped by the Chief Minister after he spearheaded a campaign to dislodge Mr. Gogoi. Mr. Dutta is considered a Gogoi loyalist who handled important porfolios like transport.

In Kolkata, premises of one Bapi Karim, who was a personal assistant to a minister, industrialists Sajjan and Sandhir Agarwal, a former IPS officer Deben Biswas and one Asif Khan were searched.

There are four FIRs against Saradha Group in which it is alleged that thousands of investors were allegedly duped by the company officials and their associates who swindled their deposits. Besides, there are 44 FIRs in Odisha against ponzi companies.

The Supreme Court had handed over the Saradha chit fund scam probe to CBI and asked the State governments to provide all logistical help to the CBI team investigating the matter.

CBI has formed a Special Investigating Team (SIT) headed by Joint Director Rajeev Singh to also probe the role of Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and RBI.

“Investigation conducted so far puts a question mark on the role of regulatory authorities like SEBI, Registrar of Companies and officials of RBI within whose respective jurisdictions and areas of operation the scam not only took birth but flourished unhindered,” an apex court bench headed by Justice T.S. Thakur had said in its order.

GUWAHATI: The Atal Bihari Vajpayee Bhawan, the BJP headquarters here, on Sunday virtually turned into a classroom. Banking and financial experts, and saffron party leaders imparted lessons to grassroots party workers on the long-term benefits of demonetisation and the necessity of cashless transactions.

The workers and party cadres, on their part, will fan out to areas in rural Assam to allay fears about demonetisation and try to bring about a change in the prevailing negative perception about the move.

Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president Diplu Ranjan Sarma said Sunday's workshop was organized here as part of a country-wide programme by the party to educate party members as well as the common people about the move.


"Next week onwards, our members and workers will be on the ground telling people why we should all be opting for cashless transactions. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken a bold initiative. It has come a big blow to the terror networks. So, we have to take this message to the people, especially in rural areas," Sarma said.

Sarma said financial experts will join hands with BJP's youth wing to explain to the people at the grassroots level the pros and cons of demonetization. "Yuva Morcha will be at the forefront of this exercise. Our members will be at the block-level, in street corners and outside banks," he added.

BJYM national secretary and in charge for Assam, Swarup Sikder, said the training programme for BJYM members is being organized across the northeast.

"Youths can take a proactive role in spreading awareness among people on cashless transaction. This is basically a campaign for cashless economy," Sikder said.

GUWAHATI: Members of Koch royal families have asked the government to set up statues of Koch king Naranarayan and his younger brother, Chilarai, on the Kamakhya temple premises here.

The royal families under the banner of Consortium of Koch Royal Families (Conkorf) had met governor Banwarilal Purohit last month with their demand for installtion of the two statues.


Conkorf said the Kamakhya temple was built by Naranarayan and Chilarai in 1565 and that the duo deserved a place on the temple premises. The royal families have also raised the pitch for granting ST status to the Koch Rajbongshi community saying that the community is an indigenous group in the state and such a safeguard would help in protecting their culture and identity.

"In the present situation, it has become imperative for the community to have constitutional safeguards for the protection of its culture and identity. At the same time, it has also become equally important to preserve the historical monuments built during the Koch rule," Conkorf secretary Pranab Narayan Dev, a scion of the royal family of Darrang Koch kingdom, said.

In September, Conkorf and other Koch Rajbongshi organisations staged a protest at Chilarai Park in Amingaon, on the outskirts of Guwahati, demanding proper upkeep of the statue of the Koch general.

After the death of king Naranarayan in 1584, the Koch kingdom was divided into Koch Behar and Koch Hajo. Koch Behar was ruled by Naranayan's son Lakshmi Narayan and Koch Hajo, which covers large parts of present-day Assam, was ruled by Chilarai's son Raghu Narayan.

GUWAHATI: AICC general secretary CP Joshi on Sunday said a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) should probe demonetization which could be one of the biggest scams in the country.

"The JPC should probe the entire proceedings which have taken place on demonetization. This is the biggest ever scam in the country. From BJP-ruled Haryana to Nagaland where the party is in the government, demonetised notes were ferried in charter planes. This needs to be probed," said Joshi, while talking to reporters in Guwahati.


He also described the role of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor as 'unfortunate'. "Was not the RBI aware of the fact that ATMs will need to be recalibrated given the size of the new currency notes? The RBI should have highlighted the problems faced by common people," he said.

The Congress also sought details of properties acquired by RSS and its affiliate organisation besides BJP in the last one year.

"BJP has asked its MPs to submit details of the properties to party president Amit Shah. Why to party president? Why can't they make it public and put in on the website?" asked Joshi.

Joshi, who is in charge of Assam, said the Narendra Modi government is desperately trying to cover up its failure with demonetization. "What they were doing over the last two and half years to bring back black money? Initially, Modi said demonetization will bring back black money. Now, he is talking about cashless economy. The PM has failed to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of people. To cover up his failure, all these things are being done," he said.
