After a police shooting at a former student leader in central Assam’s Nagaon district on Saturday evening, anger has erupted against ‘publicity obsessed’ IPS officer Anand Mishra.
Kirti Kamal Bora, a former Nagaon College general secretary, was injured in police firing in Nagaon’s Kachalukhua district. The event occurred on Saturday night while he was out shopping for medicine for his mother.
Hundreds of people protested in Nagaon town on Sunday for “brutality” against the former student leader and burned the IPS officer’s effigy. They requested that Nagaon SP Anand Mishra and SI Pradip Bania, who reportedly fired at former AASU head Bora, be prosecuted.
Hundreds of Nagaon College students stopped a road and chanted anti-“publicity mad” Nagaon SP Anand Mishra chants. Akhil Gogoi, MLA from Sivasagar and Raijaor Dal head, has requested that SP Mishra be suspended immediately.
“We demanded the government to immediately suspend Nagaon’s Superintendent of Police and arrest the police personnel who were involved in shooting the innocent youth,” he added.
Attacking the state government, Debabrata Saikia, Leader of Opposition, said, “Our Chief Minister has openly said – even in the assembly – that it should not be a pattern. Here you see someone has gone it to buy medicine and is shit at and police were alleging that he was peddling drugs and all.”
Nagaon Police recently gained news for their large anti-drug operation in the district, which resulted in deaths and injuries.
Following the demonstrations, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma announced on Sunday the formation of a one-man probe commission investigating the incident, to be led by the state’s Additional Chief Secretary Paban Borthakur.
Sarma stated that the report must be submitted within seven days. The Assam police department also closed to reserve two officers for their alleged involvement in the shooting incident.
