GUWAHATI, June 11 - Describing as �shameful� MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa� act of �freeing� a person detained at Garmur police station in Jorhat, the Congress on Saturday said it marks the start of an unholy tradition in the State.
�Such shameful acts, normally scene in movies, had been earlier witnessed in North and South India. In Assam, it is the first,� Opposition leader Debabrata Saikia said. He said it is for the court to judge if a person detained by police is culpable or not.
�Even if the detained person is his neighbour, it is not right for the MP to interfere with the police. If he was so concerned, he could have inquired with the senior officials of the administration,� Saikia said.
Reminding that the prestigious constituency of Jorhat had been in the past represented by respected politicians, the Opposition leader cautioned the incumbent not to repeat such acts.
The Congress also demanded a proper inquiry into the matter.
