DIBRUGARH, July 2 � The alleged suicide of Bimal Kumar, the upright general manager of Brahmaputra Cracker & Polymer Limited (BCPL), the company that is establishing the Rs 10,000-crore Assam Gas Cracker Project at Lepetkata here, continues to be shrouded in mystery. He died under unnatural circumstances last Saturday (June 27) at his official quarter at Borboruah. Though the police say they are �going ahead with the investigations�, what they have mostly done is to courteously invite senior officials of BCPL to question-answer sessions and let go. Till today, no arrests have been made.

What the police have done is that four computers (including two laptops) used by Bimal Kumar have been sent to the Assam Police CID for forensic and technical examination. Those from BCPL who have been questioned so far include managing director Prabhu Nath Prasad, chief operating officer Manoj Kumar Jain, general manager (HR), PK Mati, and deputy general manager (project execution) KK Chatiwal.

The deceased Bimal Kumar is alleged to have committed suicide after being unable to cope with the massive corruption and nepotism that is prevailing in the gas cracker construction activities. The corruption has already been widely reported in both the print and TV media in the State.

While the Assam Police is taking its own time in the process of the investigations, the public demand here is that the investigations be handed over to the CBI, given its better crime busting potential. Strangely enough, the Assam Government has made no such recommendation to the CBI till today. Despite the fact that the gas cracker is a �national project�, the Centre too is dragging its feet in a serious corruption case that has claimed the life of a senior Central Government official.
