Guwahati, Sept 7 (IBNS): Two former Congress ministers of Assam are now in trouble after the Vigilance of Anti-Corruption (V&AC) of Assam police has started investigation against them in disproportionate assets case.

According to the reports, following the directive by Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, the V&AC has registered a disproportionate assets case against former minister Gautam Roy and started investigation against another former Congress minister Akon Bora. Both held charges of few departments in the previous state government.

ADGP of V&AC YK Gautam said that, a disproportionate case has already been registered against Gautam Roy and asked him to appear before the V&AC office on Wednesday.

“But he sought more time up to October 10 next from the investigation agency and said that his physical condition is not good to appear before the agency,” ADGP YK Gautam said.

On the other hand, the investigation agency has also started a probe against another former Congress minister Akon Bora following corruption charges made against him.

The sleuths of V&AC had recently raided the residence of the former Congress minister.

Meanwhile, the top Assam cop said that, a team of the investigation agency had grilled Akon Bora two days back and likely to grill him next time again.

Earlier, the two former ministers were grilled by the investigation agency in the Rs 2250 crore Social Welfare scam.
