High drama in Akhil arrest

A high drama took place when police and para military forces arrested Akhil Gogoi from his own residence on Thursday wee hours.

As a police team led by magistrate Chinmoy Sarma reached Gogoi’s rented house in Nazarapar in Chandmari, KMSS supporters in large number thronged Chandmari and tried to prevent the arrest.

Police resorted to blankfiring to disperse the KMSS supporters. Gogoi who is being kept in Panbazar police station has been arrested in two non bailable cases. He is expected to be produced before the court towards the evening.
