Akhil Gogoi Taken Into 10 days NIA Custody


Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) chief Akhil Gogoi has been taken into 10 days NIA custody.

The NIA seeks 20 days custody but the court has given 10 days custody to the peasant leader.

NIA filed three cases against Gogoi under Section 120(B)/124(A), 153(A)/153(B) and 18/39 of Unlawful Activities (Preventive) Act, (UAPA).

Gogoi was produced at NIA court in Guwahati on Tuesday. He has been brought to Guwahati by flight under tight security.

Speaking to reporters outside the court, Gogoi said, “I have been tortured a lot inside the jail campus.”

It may be mentioned that the NIA has filed a case against Gogoi in allegation that he is interlinked with the Maoists.

The NIA alleged that Gogoi merged KMSS with Revolutionary Communist Centre (RCC) in 2009.

RCC later merged with CPI (Maoist), it alleges.

Akhil was arrested by Assam police on Thursday from upper Assam’s Jorhat district as a preventive measure, amid violent protests against the CAA across the state.

Gogoi was on Saturday booked under the UAPA by the NIA and flown to Delhi by the central agency.
