Guwahati: Suspended Bharatiya Party leader Dipanjoli Kakati was arrested on Saturday morning in Tinsukia for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
Following the incident, Kakati was suspended from the saffron party and was apprehended by police today from her residence in Tinsukia.
Earlier in November, Kakati allegedly physically assaulted a police officer inside the Kakopathar police station after the police officer refused to set free a culprit who was brought to the police station for questioning.
The leader of saffron party has been booked under Section 332 of the IPC – a non-bailable offence.
Kakati was a former member of the Moran Autonomous Council and executive member of the state BJP committee.
Although, she filed for a pre-arrest bail in this regard, it remained cancelled.
