GUWAHATI, March 27 - Amid tight security, prime accused in the Silapathar incident Subodh Biswas and co-accused Subhas Biswas were today produced before the court of Dhemaji Chief Judicial Magistrate Pawan Kalita who remanded the duo in police custody for nine days.
As they were granted five days� transit remand by the court of Additional CJM of North 24 Parganas at Bongaon in West Bengal, the nine-day custody was the maximum police could get.
Meanwhile, the court today appointed two amici curiae (impartial advisers) as there was none to defend the accused in the court. Special public prosecutor Bijon Mahajan appeared in the court on behalf of the government.
The accused were shifted to Dhemaji yesterday, following their arrest from a village in West Bengal�s North 24 Parganas district.
Subodh, a senior leader of the Nikhil Bharat Bangali Udbastu Samannay Samity (NIBBUS) was the man behind the ransacking of the AASU office at Silapathar in Dhemaji district on March 6, besides making provocative comments, leading to statewide protest seeking arrest of the culprits involved in the incident.
