Forty-six cases have been reported and 27 people have so far been arrested by police for engaging in violent anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in Dibrugarh in 2019.
This was told on Tuesday at a joint press conference in Dibrugarh by Dibrugarh police superintendent Sreejith Thiraviam.
When addressing the press conference, which was also attended by deputy commissioner Pallav Gopal Jha from Dibrugarh, newly joined district police Sreejith Thiraviam told media people that they were arrested with sufficient evidence against them.
“Police are also verifying the CCTV and video footage received from various sources. Police have also identified the trouble-mongers from the video and CCTV footage. Actions will be taken soon against them based on the evidence. No one will be spared,” said the SP.
However, the law and order situation is now normal in Dibrugarh.
No incident of violence has been reported in the last 96 hours in any part of Dibrugarh district.
Curfew was relaxed from 6 am to 8 pm on Tuesday.
“More cases will be registered. Collection of evidence is going on and local people are helping us by coming forward for giving statements. The DGP has formed a special supervision task force. Action will be taken against the instigators and those involved in violence as per law,” said the SP.
He also said, “We will take strict action against those who are spreading fake news and rumours. All cases will be properly supervised. The special supervision task force, formed for the Northeast range, will have the additional SP (HQ) as a member.”
