Junmoni Rabha death case: Nagaon Sadar Police Station is under scrutiny as Inspector Manoj Rajbongshi, the officer-in-charge, has been suspended in connection with the mysterious death case of sub-inspector Junmoni Rabha. Inspector Rajbongshi was among four officials who were abruptly relocated to the Assam Police Headquarters on May 19. The decision to suspend him comes during the ongoing investigation into SI Rabha’s death.
In addition to Inspector Rajbongshi, three other officials were also closed to the Assam Police Headquarters with immediate effect. These officials include Rupjyoti Kalita, Additional SP (Crime), Inspector Bhaskar Kalita, OC North Lakhimpur PS, and Sanjib Bora, IC Naoboisha outpost. The order stated that they must relinquish their current positions and report to the Assam Police Headquarters promptly.
Further adding to the list of police personnel being relocated, Sub-Inspector Abhajyoti Rabha of Nagaon DEF was also directed to report to the Assam Police Headquarters in Ulubari. The sudden transfers and suspensions have raised eyebrows and generated speculation among the public regarding the ongoing investigation into SI Rabha’s untimely demise.
Amidst the developments, Assam Director General of Police (DGP) GP Singh has officially recommended the transfer of investigations in all four registered cases in Nagaon and Lakhimpur districts to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The decision was reached after a comprehensive evaluation of various aspects of the case and consultations with the CID Assam and senior police officers from the Assam Police Headquarters.
GP Singh’s vow to unfold the mystery
Assam’s Director General of Police (DGP), GP Singh, has made a bold pledge to dismantle fake currency and fake gold rackets within the state within the next 30 days. This announcement comes in the wake of the tragic car accident which claimed the life of SI Junmoni Rabha, which has brought to light a connection to the illegal trade of fake currency and fake gold in the Bangalmora area of Lakhimpur district, Assam.
Investigations have revealed, the deceased police officer had traveled to Bangalmora on May 6, acting on a tip-off from a local source, to apprehend a fake gold trader named Asgar Ali. Telephonic conversations between Hasina Begum, the informant from Bangalmora, and Lakhimpur’s additional SP Runa Neog (now transferred) have shed light on long-standing allegations of a nexus between law enforcement and criminal elements involved in the illicit trade in the district.
Following the accident, Hasina Begum has consistently claimed to the media that SI Junmoni Rabha had warned her of potential threats to her life and had urged her to seek protection in Nagaon. She further alleged that police officers from Nowboicha, Bangalmora outposts, and Narayanpur police station were collaborating with the fake gold traders. Such allegations of police involvement in the fake gold and fake currency trade have been circulating among the public for several years.
The illegal trade appears to be concentrated within a small area, covering villages like Pandhowa, Borsola, Mohghuli, Tinithegiya, Sonapur, Jubanagar, and more, falling under the jurisdiction of Bangalmora, Nowboicha, Silanibari, Dolahat Police Outposts, as well as Laluk and Bihpuria Police Stations. With DGP GP Singh’s commitment to exposing the truth, the public eagerly awaits the uncovering of all facts surrounding this illicit trade.
Further twist in the Junmoni Rabha mysterious death case
Meanwhile, in a significant development, the truck driver involved in the sensational Junmoni Rabha “accident” case surrendered himself to the police. The truck driver has been identified as Sumit Kumar, and he turned himself in at the Jakhalabanda police station in Assam. Acting swiftly, the Assam Police immediately arrested Sumit Kumar upon his surrender. He had been evading authorities since the day of the accident that tragically claimed the life of Sub-Inspector Junmoni Rabha.
It is worth mentioning that earlier reports suggested that Junmoni Rabha’s car had collided with a parked truck, leading to her death. However, an eyewitness named Pranab Das, a professional driver, came forward on Wednesday, providing a different account. Das claimed that, contrary to previous reports, it was the truck that crashed into Junmoni Rabha’s parked car, causing the fatal accident.
