GUWAHATI, June 24 - The subdivisional judicial magistrate of Kamrup (Metro) on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant against Kolkata-based political commentator Garga Chatterjee who had made offensive remarks on Swargadeo Chaolung Siu-Ka-Pha on social media.
The court instructed the officer-in-charge of Chetla police station in Kolkata to arrest the accused person and produce him before the court on or before July 3. It also directed Kolkata Police Commissioner to execute the warrant of arrest against Chatterjee and ensure his production before the court at the earliest.
Earlier, an Assam Police team that left for Kolkata to arrest Chatterjee returned empty-handed on Tuesday due to �lack of cooperation� from the local police stations of West Bengal.
After Chatterjee�s derogatory remarks on Chaolung Siu-Ka-Pha several organisations in the State had filed FIRs against him demanding his immediate arrest.
