Press Release
New Delhi , 29.08.2012

            Reports have been published in a section of the media yesterday (28.08.2012) carrying allegations that CBI has named persons belonging to only one particular community as accused, in cases registered by CBI in recent violent incidents in Assam.

 

            Such allegations are totally false, motivated and are strongly denied by the CBI.

 

            CBI has set up a special team which is conducting a meticulous and impartial investigation, under the supervision of highly experienced senior officers having impeccable record.

 

            The investigation of these seven cases has been taken up by CBI on the request of Assam Govt. which were earlier registered by Assam Police.
