NAGAON, June 20: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team, headed by DIG Lovely Katiyar, commenced their investigation into the two cases registered against the late lady sub inspector Junmoni Rabha. The team left Nagaon circuit house on Tuesday morning and proceeded to Lakhimpur district, where the incidents took place prior to her untimely demise.

The registered cases against the deceased officer involved the alleged release of Azgar Ali, who was apprehended for his involvement in the circulation of counterfeit Indian currency notes and fake gold across the state. Sources indicate that it was claimed the lady sub inspector accepted a bribe of Rs 6 lakh in exchange for Azgar Ali’s release, shortly after his arrest in Lakhimpur. Following their investigation in Lakhimpur, the CBI team is expected to return to Nagaon circuit house in a few days’ time.

In the midst of these developments, Bhupen Bora, the president of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), arrived at Nagaon circuit house on Tuesday morning and expressed his advocacy for a judicial probe into the mysterious death case of SI Junmoni Rabha, rather than relying on a CBI investigation. During a conversation with local media representatives, Bora conveyed his skepticism regarding the credibility of the CBI’s findings in such cases, suggesting that the agency often functions in accordance with the directions of the central government.

“We cannot place our trust in the CBI, and therefore, the state government should initiate a judicial probe to thoroughly examine the entire sequence of events surrounding the death of SI Junmoni Rabha,” asserted the state Congress president.
