    Gauhati High Court rejects bail plea of activist Akhil Gogoi

    A bench of two judges, comprising of Justice Kalyan Roy and Justice Ajit Borthakur, rejected the bail application. Gogoi will continue to languish in the prison.

    Guwahati: The Gauhati High Court on Thursday morning has rejected the bail plea of activist Akhil Gogoi, who has been in jail since December 2019.

    The court heard Gogoi’s bail plea in a case registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in Guwahati.

    A bench of two judges, comprising of Justice Kalyan Roy and Justice Ajit Borthakur, rejected the bail application. Gogoi will continue to languish in the prison.

    Activist Akhil Gogoi was earlier granted bail by a special NIA court in one of the two cases being probed by the agency in connection with his alleged role in the violent protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in the state.

    Gogoi is currently undergoing treatment at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital. He was arrested on December 12, 2019, for leading the protest of anti-CAA outside the Jorhat deputy commissioner’s office.

    The NIA said that Gogoi has been booked for “waging a war against the nation”, conspiracy and rioting.
