The Gauhati high court has dismissed allegations made by the Assam authorities about the use of bulldozers in the name of investigations. A bench of Chief Justice RM Chhaya and Judge Soumitra Saikia took note of the destruction by Assam police of the houses of six suspects accused of setting fire to a police station in Nagaon district last May at a recent suo motu hearing. an alleged custodial death. “You (the state) show us from any criminal jurisprudence that for the purpose of investigating a crime, the police can uproot a person without any warrant and use a bulldozer?” Justice Chhaya asked the state attorney who filed a report from the Nagaon SP on the action. Judge Chhaya pointed to the report and noted, “He may be an SP, but even your senior officials have to go through the gamut of the law. Just because they’re chief of police, they can’t break into anyone’s house. No one is safe in this country if this kind of action is allowed.”
