Special Crime Team of CBI will investigate violence into the clashes in BTAD and Dubri districts where "internal and external forces were at work". State government has recommended CBI probe into the violence after the death toll in the ethnic violence in Assam has climbed to 73.
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi recently said that his government has recommended a CBI probe into the clashes in BTAD and Dubri districts where "internal and external forces were at work". "I have recommended a CBI probe into the incidents and now it is upto the Centre to take a final decision on
instituting it," Gogoi told reporters here.
The chief minister said that "both external and internal forces are at work" and hoped that the probe would identify the forces behind the violence. On complaints that Bangladeshi migrants were in relief
camps, Gogoi said, "We have got reports that people from other states and areas near BTAD are illegally taking shelter in the camps. Their antecedents will be checked and we will not allow rehabilitation of outsiders. Only genuine Indian citizens will be rehabilitated."
