Akhil Gogoi shifted to Titabor

Amid massive security, police shifted Akhil Gogoi to Titabor on Sunday a day after the court allowed transit remand of the KMSS president.

At 11 in the morning, Gogoi was taken to Sarusajai to be airlifted to Titabor where police would grill him in connection with two cases pending against him.

Gogoi was to be released on Saturday when on Friday he procured bail from Gauhati High Court in cases.

Hundreds of KMSS workers staged dharna in front of the Guwahati Central Jail where he was lodged. But security forces did not allow them to meet Gogoi even when he was taken out of the Guwahati Central jail.
