Judicial custody for Akhil Gogoi

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 26 � The Court of the Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate (1), Kamrup, today remanded Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi to judicial custody after investigators probing Wednesday�s Dispur violence did not seek any further extension of police remand.

Gogoi, who was arrested and subsequently remanded to three days� police custody on Friday, was reproduced before the Court of SDJM Ramen Baruah around 4-20 pm today � a day before the expiry of the remand period � purportedly to avert any law-and-order situation on Monday.

Gogoi, however, was shown arrested by Assam Police in connection with Panbazar Police Station case number 104/11 under Sec 188 IPC, although he was released on the strength of a personal bond. The case relates to violation of CrPC 144 a day before the second phase of the recently-held Assembly elections.

The court, meanwhile, taking into consideration the medical examination report of the RTI activist, asked the authority concerned to facilitate his treatment at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).

After being produced before the court, Gogoi was directly taken to the GMCH where he would be kept till his recovery. Gogoi is said to be suffering from multiple complications including back pain.

Akhil Gogoi was represented by advocate Bhaskar Deb Konwar in the court. Konwar said that the bail petition on behalf of the peasant leader would be filed after consulting the matter with the family of the accused.

The general secretary of the KMSS, after coming out of the court, thanked his supporters for their support and urged them to continue the movement � not against his arrest but in support of the public issues.

Earlier, apprehending a law-and-order situation, Assam Police constructed barricades around a 100-metre radius of the CJM Court premises and deployed security personnel at all the entry points.

Movement of vehicular traffic was also regulated on the route till late evening.

Supporters of Akhil Gogoi who turned out in sizeable numbers were not allowed to cross the barricades. The supporters shouted slogans against the alleged police misconduct during the Dispur incident.

Meanwhile, railway movement was not affected even though KMSS had launched a �rail roko abhijan� against Akhil Gogoi�s arrest.

NF Railway sources informed that though picketeers tried to disrupt train movement in some places including upper Assam and Patshala, timely intervention by police foiled such attempts, except near Jamguri and Barpathar stations where trains were halted by protestors for a couple of hours.

Around 1,500 activists of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) were arrested during the railway track blockade.

The number of people arrested included 500 at Selenghat, 600 at Lanka, 200 at Kampur, 30 at Teok, 50 at Algapur, 50 at Jagiroad, and 50 at Pathsala. Around 5,000 people took part in the stir at Tengani for six hours and it was peaceful.
