AGP seeks reopening of Manabendra murder case

The Gauhati High court has admitted a public interest litigation from the opposition Asom Gana Parishad for reopening the sensational Manabenda Sarma murder case.

The petition was moved by Sotea MLA Padma Hazarika and was admitted by the court of acting chief justice Ranjan Gogoi. Notably, Assam health and family welfare minister Himants Biswa Sama’s name has cropped up as he was allegedly involved in the case. Sarma was arrested under TADA.

It may be noted that the development has come up a few days after a former MP from Bihar Sukhdeo Paswan moved a writ petition seeking to withdraw his petition seeking reopening of the same case where the minister’s name was involved. The court, however, has asked Paswan to file an affidavit.
