Former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader, Nabam Tuki, who is at present MLA from Sagalee constituency on Sunday claimed that he has not received any notice from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), days after the probe agency booked Tuki and three others including his brother Nabam Tagam earlier this week.
“Officially abhi tak humko information nahi mila hai. Jab notice ayega uske bad hi baat karenge. (I have not received official information (from CBI) so far. After I receive notice then only I shall talk),” Tuki said here, after being asked in this regard.
Claiming that through media reports he came to know that he was booked by CBI, the former CM said, “Allegation ka jaach hota hein kanuuni taur se. Enquiry hoga , investigation hoga, uske baad hi sahi or galat pata chalega. (the allegation labelled in the complain will be investigated thoroughly as per the laws, then after that what is right or wrong, it will be known.”
