Meanwhile, official sources said the leader is being taken to Guwahati under tight security. A police contingent is accompanying the RTI activist, who is also the general secretary of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti.

Gogoi was attacked by some miscreants while he had gone to visit flood-hit areas in Punni village under Dharampur Assembly constituency, represented by Assam Agriculture Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka.
