Assam police on Monday re-arrested Assam KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi under National Security Act (NSA), who was earlier arrested on charges of threatening to wage war against the country by allegedly urging the indigenous people of Assam to take up AK-47 rifle to protect their rights.
Akhil was re-arrested by the Nagaon police from the premises of district judge court in Dibrugarh in presence of a magistrate under the NSA in connection with a case registered at Jakhalabandha police related to the eviction drive in Kaziranga last year.
Earlier, Akhil Gogoi was arrested by the Dibrugarh police from his residence in Golaghat town on September 13 evening in connection with the case registered at Moran police station against him.
Meanwhile, the Dibrugarh court had rejected the bail petition of Akhil Gogoi and sent him to 14-day judicial custody.
On the other hand, thousands of protesters of KMSS had shouted slogans against the BJP-led Assam government and demanded unconditional release of Akhil Gogoi.
