    GUWAHATI : In a major breakthrough, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is reportedly to take over the investigation of the sensational 2009 Jogdol murder case. Six members of a family, including four children, were brutally killed on the outskirts of the city, sending shock waves across the state. As per reports, after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the state police failed to come to any conclusion, the state government sent a recommendation to the Centre for a CBI probe into the case. The investigation agency is likely to take over the investigation shortly. The CBI is likely to hand over the investigation of this case to its special crime branch either in New Delhi or Kolkata, as per reports. It may be mentioned, way back in 2014, Dispur BJP MLA Atul Bora wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to hand over the case to the CBI. In the letter, Bora alleged that Congress leader Akon Bora was involved in the murder. However, Akon denied the allegations stating that it is a political conspiracy to malign his image. On December 12, 2009, Harakanta Doloi (45), his wife Sapna (40) and their three children and a nephew were hacked to death by unidentified assailants at Jogdol village under Sonapur police station. Doloi’s minor daughter was raped before being murdered, as per forensic reports. After murdering all the six members of the family, killers have reportedly lit the house on fire to destroy the evidence against them.
