Protest brews over MLA arrest

The arrest of BPF MLA Pradeep Kumar Brahma triggers a massive protest in Kokrajhar when the party workers came out early in the morning to block the National Highway. Some others have blocked the trains in the district.


Immediately after police arrested the West Kokrajhar MLA from his Dotoma-based residents, BPF workers led by a few leaders took to the streets alleging that Brahma was arrested bereft of any reason. Notably, police have arrested BPF MLA Pradeep Kumar Brahma from Kokrajhar on Wednesday night. Brahma, the BPF MLA from West Kokrajhar was picked up by a team of police from his own residence in Dotoma.

We strongly recommend to release MLA Pradeep Kr Brahma because all the members of BTC are strongly in support of him.We are from Baksa district and we also strongly recommend to release him as soon.Keeping him to custody will force us to to take opposite actions against Assam police. We have seen that Assam polices are making similar mistakes in many cases,if it is going on like that we will totally regret assam police rules and we will not accept any police rules!!!This is our public voice!!!
