Ready to join probe: Sarma on FIR by Mizoram Govt


Tribune News Service
New Delhi, July 31

A day after the Mizoram Government said it had filed an FIR naming Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and other top officials of the neighbouring state, Sarma said he was willing to join any investigation, but wanted to know why a neutral agency could not probe the matter.

Escalating the tension further, the Mizoram Police had on Friday night booked Sarma and six top Assam officials on charges of attempt to murder and assault, in the wake of Monday’s border gunfight between their two police forces. The Assam officials against whom the Mizoram Police have registered an FIR include IGP Anurag Aggarwal, DIG of Cachar Devojyoti Mukherjee, Cachar Superintendent of Police Cahndrakant Nimbalkar and officer in-charge of the Dholai police station Sahab Uddin.
