The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday, November 7, detained former Assam Chief Minister Hiteswar Saikia’s son Ashok Saikia after a raid in his house at Sarumotoria, Guwahati.

Raid due to mortgage issue

The raid is associated with a mortgage rip-off in the Assam State Co-operative and Agriculture Development (ASCARD) Bank.

The CBI  raided his property in reference to a case (No 202/1998) registered with Paltan Bazar police station.

Case handed over to CBI

However, the case was handed over to the CBI in 2001. 

The case was then transferred to the CBI in regards to the complaints (No. 5/E/ 2001 and 6/E/2001) filed in the Kolkata Branch of the CBI.

Ashok Saikia was convicted in 2013 for the 6/E/2001 case.

The son of former leader minister Hiteswar Saikia was on the run after appealing to the court.

On November 9, he will have to appear before a special CBI court.
