Assam Police team fails to arrest Garga

By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, June 23 - An Assam Police team that left for Kolkata to arrest Garga Chatterjee, who on his Twitter handle made offensive remarks on Swargadeo Chaolung Siu-Ka-Pha, returned empty-handed on Tuesday due to �lack of cooperation� from the local police stations of West Bengal.

On Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal�s directive, the team left for the West Bengal capital a few days ago to arrest Chatterjee for his derogatory remarks on Swargadeo Chaolung Siu-Ka-Pha on social media.

Guwahati Police Commissioner Munna Prasad Gupta said that due to non-cooperation of the West Bengal Police and various mass agitations, the team could not arrest Chatterjee. �Further legal action will be initiated to nab Chatterjee soon,� he said.

After Chatterjee�s derogatory remarks on Chaolung Siu-Ka-Pha � the architect of the greater Assamese identity � several organisations in the State filed FIRs against him demanding his immediate arrest.
