Assam CM rallied behind Salman Khurshid.

Salman KhurshidGuwahati: On Tuesday Assam CM Tarun Gogoi rallied behind Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid who has accusations of graft charges levelled against him.

He said in a statement that “Will it be proper to crucify Salman Khurshid or anyone without any substantive evidence of guilt? No one can be crucified unless found guilty.”

Citing the case of ex-Assam minister Ripun Bora, Gogoi said that though the CBI charge sheeted him on the basis of prima facie evidence, the High Court and Supreme Court exonerated him from all charges.

He added that “No one can be termed guilty unless proved to the contrary.”
