GUWAHATI, Feb 25 � Director General of Assam Police Khagen Sarma said that no leniency would be adopted by the investigators against Akhil Gogoi or any other KMSS leader if they are found guilty in abetting the suicide by Pranab Boro who died after self-immolation during a protest programme on Monday.
The top Assam Police official, while talking to media persons this evening, said that the investigation has begun and all the evidences are being examined.
�The process of examining digital evidences is also on. Police is on the job,� Sarma said.
�There is no question of any kind of leniency against anybody if evidence is found against him or her. Earlier too, we had registered cases against Akhil Gogoi and if his involvement is found in this case, he will have to face the consequences like any other common man,� the DGP said.
He, however, said that the incident was very unfortunate and has thrown new challenges before the police.
�This time, general public have come forward to register the case � which is new,� he pointed out.
�If anyone decides to resort to such acts out of the blue, there is hardly anything police can do. Earlier too, such threats were there; but those were, more or less, kind of programmed,� he said.
Replying to the complaint filed by the family members of the deceased against Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, the DGP said, � The gravity and the basis of the complaint is being looked into.�
On the tension prevailing in Behali on the Assam-Arunachal border, the DGP said that security forces have been deployed there and the State police is in touch with its counterparts in Arunachal Pradesh.
�Although most of the suspects have been identified and their names shared with Arunachal police, they are yet to be traced,� Sarma said.
