GUWAHATI, July 18 – The State Agriculture department today placed senior assistant (Soil Survey) Bikash Baruah under suspension after the report of the inquiry into his not attending office for more than 13 years was submitted. The inquiry was done by assistant director of Agriculture Department (Soil Survey).
Baruah, who is also charged under a number of sections for allegedly morphing a picture showing him alongside Kolkata Knight Riders’ owner Shah Rukh Khan and actress Deepika Padukone, was issued the suspension letter by the Director of Agriculture (Memo No Agri /Esstt/7081/2013-14).
It needs mention that a case has already been registered with the Dispur police station against Baruah alleging his involvement in a number of anomalies in the department.
After the move initiated by the Agriculture department, all eyes are now on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Assam Cricket Association bosses which have so far remained mute spectators even after forensic department found the picture to be morphed.
Investigators, however, without divulging much said that the probe is going on in the right direction.
