No headway into Sonapur killings

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 23 � The investigation into the gruesome killing of the Doloi family in Sonapur area has apparently come to a grinding halt with allegations that the probe was being diverted by the investigation agency in the interest of a section of influential land mafia active in land grabbing.

A section of officials have even alleged that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is now trying to give the investigation a new direction at the behest of those at the helm of affairs.

Making matters worse, even the CID�s recent supplication for DNA tests of the two arrested that could have given the investigation a concrete shape has been turned down by the Forensic Science Laboratory, Kahilipara due to lack of sufficient samples collected from the bodies of Harakanta Doloi�s wife and daughter, who were allegedly raped before being murdered.

These allegations assume significance as there has been no breakthrough in the investigation ever since the arrest of two accused, though the investigation agency had earlier claimed to have zeroed in on the involvement of land mafia in the incident. Moreover, the arrested duo also continues to deny their involvement.

The transfer of Superintendent of Police (CID) D Malakar, who was monitoring the investigation since the beginning, at an important juncture of the investigation, too, has raised eyebrows.

�The SP too apparently became the scapegoat of the entire dilly-dallying of the investigation process,� a source claimed.

�Even the representatives of the district administration had a fair idea about the involvement of the land mafia behind the killings. Interestingly, though representatives from various sections of the society, including the local residents, created a hue and cry pressing for a fair investigation, the public outcry too, all of a sudden, lost its momentum,� sources pointed out.

The investigation officer of the case has also been tight-lipped over the progress of the probe.

Six members of the Doloi family were hacked to death by unknown assailants in Sonapur area in December last year.

Deffending the police position, ADGP(CID) Mukesh Sahai claimed that the investigation is going in the night direction and went on to inform that the involvement of land mafia behind the killing is also being probed.
