    Guwahati: Assam’s heartthrob Zubeen Garg who was one of the prime faces of the anti-Citizneship Amendment Act (CAA) movement was facing the heat from many as he was recently been made the brand ambassador of state’s farming sector.

    The singer has been criticized by many in the state for allegedly shifting his sides and taking favour from the same state government which has been pressing for implementation of CAA.

    On Wednesday night, the singer was even verbally abused by a group of people in the city’s Ganeshguri area. The incident happened when Garg was returning to his residence when a six-member gang of miscreants allegedly attacked him.

    The singer in an FIR filed with Dispur police said that the group was drunk and was also carrying beer bottles. They allegedly surrounded Garg’s vehicle and hurled derogatory remarks as well as took out beer bottles to attack the singer.

    City Police said they have been trying to identify the group members and inspecting the CCTV footages in the area.
