Assam’s Youth Congress President Arrested for Alleged Vandalism
GUWAHATI: Assam’s Youth Congress President Kamrul Islam Choudhury has been arrested on charges of alleged vandalism during the protests opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which erupted across Guwahati as well as the entire state after the contentious Act was passed by the centre.
Choudhury was arrested for allegedly indulging in acts of violence during the anti-CAA protests.
Last month, while addressing the media persons, state finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said, “His name is Kamrul Islam Choudhury and he is the president of Assam Pradesh Youth Congress. The destruction near Assam Secretariat is the handiwork of this person. The attack on that day was choreographed by Congress workers, I am not talking about the leaders. An active Congress worker used Facebook to call others to reach Gate Number 2 of Janata Bhawan.” He also showed video footage, images and Facebook post during the press meet.
