KMSS rally to protest attack on Gogoi
Guwahati: Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) activists today held a rally here amidst tight security protesting the attack on their Secretary General Akhil Gogoi in Nalbari on Friday last.
Hundreds of KMSS activists gathered at Gorchuk area on the outskirts of the city and held a rally demanding immediate arrest of the culprits involved in the attack on Gogoi.
The RTI activist had alleged that Gogoi was attacked by Congress workers and the police has arrested a panchayat member in this connection.
"The police has arrested only one person so far but five others mentioned in the FIR are yet to be picked up," KMSS spokesperson Sabita Lahkar said.
The rally had been planned to be held today and was scheduled to be addressed by Gogoi but following the attack on him it was changed to a protest meeting, Lahkar added.
Tight security measures were taken in the area with huge contingent of police force deployed in the area to prevent any untoward incident, official sources said.
Protests were held in other parts of the state also, including Nalbari, with KMSS activists burning the effigy of Agriculture Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka who Gogoi alleged was behind the attack.
Gogoi was attacked on Friday last while he had gone to survey flood village in Punni village under Dharampur assembly constituency, represented by the Agriculture minister.
Gogoi, who sustained injury on his face and waist, was undergoing treatment in the Nalbari Swahid Mukunda Kakati civil hospital.
