Assam CM Orders CID Investigation Into Udalguri Encounter

Guwahati: Chief minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma ordered the director general of police GP Singh to lead a CID investigation into the Udalguri encounter on Monday.

The CM gave DGP two weeks to submit the report.

“In view of an incident took place in Udalguri district involving the death of a dacoit and injuring two police personnel namely Sub-Inspector Hira Jyoti Pegy and constable Sukumar Barman and recovering of some arms in the encounter. Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma today asked Director General of Police G.P. Singh to initiate a CID inquiry to ascertain factual details of the incident,” a notification read.

“A magisterial inquiry has already been initiated. Chief Minister Dr. Sarma also ordered for a CIB inquiry into the incident. He asked the DGP to ensure completion of the inquiry within two weeks.”

On the request of Dimbeswar Musahari’s family, who had previously asserted mistaken identity in the case, the police had exhumed the body earlier that day, nearly four days after the Udalguri incident.

The body was exhumed in front of the magistrate on Monday night in the Orang village of Natun Panbari.
