Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun
Gogoi today said the CID probe will be ordered into the case
of the missing diaries allegedly against a senior minister of
his cabinet.

"We will ask the CID to probe into the case as to how
the diaries went missing from a police station and came into
possesion of a particular person", Gogoi told reporters here
on the sidelines of a function.

The Chief Minister was reacting to allegations
levelled by Akhil Gogoi, leader of a voluntary organisation
Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) that he was in possesion
of two missing case diaries and relevant documents against
senior minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in a TADA case in 1991.

"The CID probe will also ascertain as to how the case
diaries changed hands and has not been returned to the
city`s Chandmari police station for further action", he said.

Sarma, who was subsequently acquitted by the Guwahati
High Court, reacted to the allegation saying that the
submissions which were said to be charges were recorded under
Section 161 Cr P C in the presence of police and were
irrelevant before the court of law.

Akhil Gogoi had threatened to move the Supreme Court,
UPA chairperson, Prime Minister and Union Home Minister with
the case diaries to punish the minister.
