AIUDF MLA thrown to jail

Nagaon: A local court in  Nagaon has sent Aminul Islam to 14 days judicial custody on Tuesday after the police arrested the AIUDF MLA for spreading false rumour on quarantine.

When the police produced the MLA from Dhing before the Chief Judicial Magistrate producing evidence against him, Islam had no  convincing statement to counter it and then he was thrown to the Nagaon Central Jail.

Earlier on Monday night a team of police picked up the senior AIUDF leader to the police guest house where he was grilled for nearly 2 hours.  

Islam was quizzed after he told one of his aacquintance that the isolation wards set up by the government are like the detention camps alleging a conspiracy to kill a section of the people. 

He further said a couple of days back that the government is targeting a particular community in the name of campaign against COVID-19.
