GUWAHATI: A special NIA Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of anti-CAA leader and the chief of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti Akhil Gogoi against the Chandmari police station case no 13/19.
Notably, Bitu Sonowal, Manash Konwar and Dharjya Konwar got bail from the NIA Court earlier in the same case.
Gogoi’s counsel Santanu Borthakur said, “The NIA Court has rejected the bail plea of Akhil Gogoi today. We are yet to receive the certified copy of the 45-page judgement. However, we will move the Gauhati High Court within next week.”
NIA sources said that sufficient materials were found against Akhil Gogoi. The source claimed, “The NIA also submitted the forensic report of the voice sample of Gogoi that matched with the electronic evidence.”
Gogoi, who was tested positive for COVID-19, is currently undergoing treatment at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital. He was arrested from Jorhat on December 12, last year for his alleged role in protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
