 Sources told Assam Times that the probe refused to progress because of political influence in Dispur in the erstwhile Tarun Gogoi regime. As the probe into the sensation murder case gathers steam, two political leaders are likely to land in trouble.  

The police officer duo have been arrested for trying to destroy evidence to save the perpetrators of the gruesome murder of Harakanta Doloi along with five of his family members in 2009. Trouble might brew for a section of the forensic laboratory officials for trying to cover up the misdeeds in the report.
