GUWAHATI, Dec 26 - The NIA Special Court here today remanded Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi in 14-day judicial custody, while rejecting the NIA plea to have him in its custody for another 10 days.

The court had on December 17 sent Gogoi to a 10-day NIA custody, following which he was taken to New Delhi by the investigation agency for questioning.

Sleuths of NIA also conducted a raid at the KMSS head office located in the city�s Gandhi Basti area and at Gogoi�s Nizarapar residence here today.

According to sources, at Gogoi�s residence the NIA team seized some bank documents, diaries and files having documents on various issues on which he has been working.

The team also seized a number of books on Left ideology and socialism in the KMSS head office.

Earlier in the court, the advocate of Akhil Gogoi raised the issue of taking the KMSS leader into the court with handcuffs on December 17.

On December 12, Gogoi was arrested by Assam Police from Jorhat where he had been leading the movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Later he was handed over to the NIA.

The NIA has registered a case under Sections 120(B), 124(A), 153(A) and 153(B) of the IPC and Sections 18 and 39 of the UAPA against him.

Jorhat Staff Correspondent adds: The Court of Subdivisional Judicial Magistrate (Jorhat Sadar) today granted bail to Akhil Gogoi in the Jorhat police station case under which he was arrested on December 12 night by Assam Police.

Another KMSS local leader Dibyajyoti Sarmah, who was also arrested, was granted bail by the court about a week ago.

Meanwhile, a group of people today staged a sit-in stir in front of the Jorhat deputy commissioner�s office demanding immediate release of Gogoi from the NIA custody.
