Treasure trove in Kali temple?

The Times of India, Apr 14 2016

`Ulfa's treasure trove stolen from temple just before Army raid'

Dhananjay Mahapatra  A former Military Intelligence (MI) man on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court saying a stash of Rs 300 crore in cash, 300 kg of gold and AK-47 rifles, allegedly belonging to Ulfa, was stolen from the cellar of a nondescript Kali temple in a tea garden on the outskirts of Guwahati in 2014 and demanded a probe into the theft.“Owner of Rani Tea Garden was one Mridul Bhattacharyawho used to collect money from owners of tea gardens and give it to Ulfa.

Mridul was also involved in smuggling of gold. He and his wife were murdered under suspicious circumstances in 2012,“ petitioner Manoj Kumar Kaushal alleged.

He claimed a trusted informer had given informa tion about the treasure under the Kali temple and that the Army was planning to raid it on June 1, 2014. Less than 24 hours before the raid, 13 people named in the petition, allegedly took away the treasure, he alleged.

A bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices R Banumathi and U U Lalit asked additional solicitor general Maninder Singh to report backon the matter by May 6.
