A magisterial inquiry has been ordered into the death of Rahul Amin, one of the prime accused in the Rs 50 crore Assam Vegetable Growers’ Cooperative Society Ltd scam at the Guwahati Central jail on August 2nd, 2019.
Additional District Magistrate of Kamrup Metropolitan District, Sadnek Singh has been directed to carry out the inquiry and submit a report after 15 days. District Magistrate of Kamrup (Metropolitan) district directed Singh to submit a complete medical treatment record, health screening reports and other necessary documents to the National Human Rights Commission of India and Assam Human Rights Commission.
Amin is one among the four people who were arrested over the last month for duping hundreds of people of Rs 50 crore and selling fake schemes. He was sent to judicial custody on July 10th, 2019 after his term of custody ended by the Bureau of Investigation – Economic Offences (BIEO).
Meanwhile, Amin’s family, however, suspected a conspiracy as they claimed that he was completely fine the day before he died.
It may be mentioned, the BIEO on July 8th, 2019 arrested Amin, vice-chairperson of the society, Ranjan Pegu and Himani Basumatari after receiving 30 written complaints from various people. They were duping people by selling fake schemes and collecting money from them. They were working in Chirang, Baksa, Kokrajhar, Sonitpur and Dhemaji districts of Assam.
Also, last week the BIEO arrested another accused, Bidyut Jyoti Sarma, the gram panchayat president of Dhalaigaon located in Bongaigaon district.
