Earlier, Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta had also informed that the State Police will bring Shaheen Bagh protester Sharjeel Imam to Guwahati for interrogation after he made a controversial statement that Assam and the Northeast region should be cut off from India.
It may be mentioned here that Anti Citizenship (Amendment) Act activist Sharjeel Imam, who is also one of the main organizers of the ongoing protest in Shaheen Bagh, was arrested in a sedition case. He was slapped with sedition charges for allegedly delivering inflammatory speeches against the amended Citizenship Act and the planned National Register of Citizens.
