Guwahati News Desk: The investigation team filed a 156-page criminal complaint in court against detained Deputy Inspector General Rounak Ali Hazarika, which includes his wife Nusrat Rounak Hazarika’s name. Multiple counts of accumulating excessive wealth as well as instances of deception have been filed against the discredited official. In the charge sheet presented today, another name, Farid Ali, was included. He is accused of transacting funds across multiple accounts with his daughter.
The Chief Minister’s Special Vigilance Cell (CMSVC), which is looking into the disproportionate assets (DA) case against suspended DIG (Border) Rounak Ali Hazarika, is attempting to figure out where the money for his international trips came from. To build a solid charge sheet against the DIG, who was detained by the Chief Minister’s Special Vigilance Cell on October 5 in conjunction with a disproportionately wealth (DA) investigation, investigators are relying on documented information rather than other resources.
However, his income-exempt assets amount to around 210 per cent of his entire assets. The overall value of the assets exceeds 4 crores. The investigating officer was in court when the complaint was filed. Rounak Ali Hazarika, for example, has spent a total of Rs. 1,74,12,974 on his two children’s education up to this point. He had also conducted overseas vacations and travelled abroad nine times without first obtaining authorization from the appropriate government. On July 20, he was suspended, and on October 5, he was arrested.
The CM’s Special Vigilance Cell investigated the senior IPS officer’s excessive asset matter based on specific information. Eventually, under provisions 13(1), (a), (b)/13 (2) of the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018, a case was filed with the Vigilance PS under No. 06/2021. “In jail, we’re being interrogated. The procedure will attain the objective. In this situation, we are placing a greater emphasis on documented evidence. Documentary evidence is used in disproportionate assets (DA) proceedings. It’s more important than the testimony of witnesses.
“Since we got a complaint from the Home Department alleging that the DIG had taken nine international travels without telling the government, the inquiry has been ongoing. Before travelling on his international vacations, he did not seek authorization “On Saturday, CMSVC SP Rosie Kalita said.
