The custody was sought in connection with the SOU police station case (No. 1/95) with several sections of the IPC and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act
attributed to it.
As the case in question is already charge-sheeted, the custody of Chetia, who was represented by advocate Bijon Kumar Mahajan, cannot be granted, the court
Anup Chetia was today produced before the CBI Court, Guwahati, in connection with the case in which he was arrested after being extradited from Bangladesh as
part of the regular remand procedure under the Code of Criminal Procedure.
In the said case, the bail application has already been filed and December 7 has been fixed for case diary and response from the Central Government�s side.

Chetia will be produced before the court again on December 19 and copies will be served to him so that the case can be committed to the Court of Sessions
Judge, Kamrup (Metro), on the said date.
