GUWAHATI, Aug 3 � The Anti-corruption and Vigilance wing of the Assam Police today raided the Panjabari-based farmhouse of RH Khan, the prime accused in the multi-crore fund diversion scam in the NC Hills District Autonomous Council (Dima Hasao).
As part of its continued operation, sleuths of the anti-corruption wing conducted a thorough search in and around the farmhouse since afternoon, although nothing objectionable could be recovered till the time of filing this report.
The investigators, on the strength of Anti-corruption and Vigilance Police Station case number 6/12, had on Thursday raided the house of the suspended joint director of the Social Welfare department located in Tarun Nagar area. The sleuths had recovered a number of incriminating documents.
The Anti-corruption and Vigilance wing had registered the case after the Central Bureau of Investigation suggested to the State Government to conduct a separate inquiry against the accused.
�Certain portions of the premises were also dug out in search of cash and other valuables,� said sources, adding that the premises were being looked after by one of the relatives of RH Khan.
�We are examining the documents that were recovered yesterday and more searches will be conducted by the department in days to come,� sources added.
The case registered with the Anti-corruption wing against Khan relates to possession of wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income.
Khan, presently in judicial custody, allegedly played a key role in diverting public funds towards militant activities in the NC Hills district.
