Assam: CBI takes over investigation of SI Junmoni Rabhas death case

In a major development, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reportedly taken over the investigation of the death case of Assam Police Sub Inspector (SI) Junmoni Rabha.

Sharing the notification, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma said, “The government of India has assigned the investigation of the case concerning the unfortunate death of Smt Junmani Rabha to the Central Bureau of Investigation.”

The decision to transfer the case from the CID Assam to the premier investigating agency came after Assam Director General of Police (DGP) GP Singh visited the CBI office in New Delhi on June 12.

The visit by the Assam DGP was aimed at discussing the transfer of SI Junmoni Rabha’s death case and seeking the CBI’s intervention.

The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, had directed the DGP to initiate the transfer process.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Assam Police was initially entrusted with the inquiry.

Suspecting foul play, her family demanded an impartial probe into the accident. Speaking to the media, the deceased’s mother Sumitra Rabha had alleged that it was a case of pre-planned murder “by some unidentified racket”.

She along with Junmoni’s aunt Subarna Bodo had appealed to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to conduct an impartial enquiry into the matter and to give justice to the family by punishing the perpetrators of the “planfully created” accident.

Earlier in May, the Assam government carried out a major reshuffle in the state police department wherein various police officers were transferred.

According to an official order, the SPs in charge of Nagaon and Lakhimpur districts, where the SI Junmoni Rabha worked and cases related to her were filed, were transferred to new locations.

Anand Mishra, who previously served as the Assistant Inspector General of Police (Sports) in Assam, was reassigned to the role of Superintendent of Police (Lakhimpur). Bedanta Madhab Rajkhowa, who held the position of Superintendent of Police in Lakhimpur, assumed the position of Assistant Inspector General of Police for Sports in Assam following his transfer.

Meanwhile, Leena Doley, who previously served as the Superintendent of Police in Nagaon, was relocated to Hailakandi to fulfill the same role. The new Superintendent of Police (Nagaon) is Nabaneet Mahanta, as he has been transferred from his previous post as Superintendent of Police (Hailakandi).
