Journo arrested: SP faces the music

Dhubri: A high voltage drama has rattled the entire police force where Dhubri SP was transferred at the instance Chief Minister on Friday.

The entire scheme of things took place on Wednesday night when Dhubri police arrested a television journalist Rajiv Sarma on the basis of District Forest Officer Biswajit Ray.

Police arrested Sarma as he was attending his ailing father who died after Rajiv was taken away to the police station sending shock and anger across the state. 

A local court, however,  sent him on bail to complete his father's cremation.

For the last couple of months, Rajiv has been focussing a notorious cattle smuggling racket in the district bordering Bangladesh where a section policemen aided and abetted by a section of political leaders are allegedly involved.

Even the ruling BJP was also unhappy with Rajiv's arrest and a delegation led by state president Ranjit Das called on Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday and apprised him of the party's concern.

Meanwhile, SP Yuvraj has been transferred and DFO Ray is remaining untraceable. AP Mishra has been transferred as Dhubri SP apart from shifting the case to Bongaigaon.
