AASU workers Raha area of Nagaon district, in large number, blocked the National Highway No 37 on Thursday demanding immediate arrest of Soobodh Biswas.

Shouting slogans, hundreds of protestors pledged to carry forward the agitation to deport the illegal settlers irrespective of religion.

“We are ready to go to any extent if the government fails to nab Soobodh Biswas, the main culprit behind the attack on our office.”

Another local AASU leader said,” since we have received support from all support we won't allow the Assam Accord to gather dust. It must be implemented in letter and spirit.”
