Mohit Hojai files poll papers from jail

By The Assam Tribune

Guwahati, March 18 (IANS): Mohit Hojai, one of the key accused in the Rs 1,000-crore financial scam, on Thursday filed his nomination papers from jail for the Assam Assembly elections as a representative of a regional party, which is an ally of the main Opposition Asom Gana Parishad (AGP).

Hojai, who has also been formally charged in court by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the case, has been nominated as candidate for the Haflong Assembly constituency in North Cachar Hills district by the Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC). Hojai was arrested in 2009.

The NIA, which investigates terror related crimes, has come up with startling revelations that government funds worth millions of rupees have been going to the coffers of a separatist group in Assam. The findings point to a politician-militant-bureaucrat-contractor nexus in Assam.
