Extortionist cops! After arrested policeman hints at nexus with seniors, Assam Special DGP says role of one and all will be probed

May 22 (NL Web Desk): Assam Special DGP Kula Saikia Monday said everyone whose names come in course of the investigation process into alleged blackmailing and intimidation tactics by arrested STF sub-inspector Dipali Barua and her subordinates will be brought under the probe ambit.
Saikia’s announcement came after an arrested subordinate of Dipali Barua claimed before interrogators and the media that they were taking orders from another top cop. The arrested police official, ASI Hareswar Gogoi, went to the extent of naming STF ADGP SN Singh as the senior most police officer whose orders arrested STF SI Dipali Barua and the group were following.
It may be mentioned here that the STF sub-inspector was arrested for wrongfully confining a garage owner, believed to be involved in oil theft, and then releasing him after allegedly forcing him to pay Rs 4 lakh for his release.
“We go to operations on the basis of orders we receive from senior cops. On May 10, we were told to report at office at 8 am the next day for an operation. We are generally given orders by seniors, including ADGP SN Singh,” Hareswar Gogoi said, adding that they detained three persons that day, including garage owner Biren Haloi, and took him to the STF office at SN Singh’s orders.
It now remains to be seen as to whether the alleged role of the senior police officer is probed or whether he will be given immunity by investigators or will the law be allowed to take its own course.
