Guwahati: The Assam government has referred nine cases related to misappropriation of development funds in NC Hills district to the union Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) so that CBI can probe them.

DoPT has given its consent for inquiry and investigation into five cases by CBI but is yet to give its consent for the remaining four cases, an official release here today said.

The state government had referred one case each relating to the public works department, public health and engineering, agriculture, soil conservation, forest, health, Panchayat and rural department and two to the social welfare department, the release said.

The state government is further examining all cases of misappropriation mentioned in the special audit report of Accountant General for referring it to the CBI, it said.

The CAG had detected anomalies in development fund management of North Cachar Hills district. The issue has rocked the state with opposition parties demanding dismissal of the ruling Congress government on the issue.
