Assam’s Dhubri’s law enforcement main, Yuvraj, has been transferred immediately after the neighborhood police were slammed for arresting a journalist early on Thursday that allegedly led to his father’s dying owing to cardiac arrest.
Rajiv Sharma, who is the common secretary of Dhubri Push Club and a regional correspondent for a vernacular information channel, was arrested in connection with an extortion scenario at about 2 am from his residence, wherever he lived with his 64-yr-aged father, Sudhin Sharma.
Rajiv Sharma through a sequence of experiences had uncovered cattle smuggling ripoffs.
Sudhin Sharma experienced a cardiac arrest right after the arrest. With no assistance all-around, he died alone in his residence.
Journalist Rajiv Sharma was granted an interim bail the similar morning. He discovered his father useless when he returned to his household.
He carried out the funeral of his father at Gauripur cremation ground in the presence of a selection of journalists and relatives on Thursday evening.
Yuvraj, as a result of an official notification from the state Home Affairs division, was transferred right after the law enforcement were being severely criticised for the procedure meted out to the accused.
The Guwahati Press Club, in the meantime, has termed the incident as unfortunate and has demanded intervention of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
“We want the CM to intervene and ensure that Mr Sharma is not harassed in the name of investigation,” president Manoj Kumar Nath and secretary Sanjay Ray of the push club mentioned in a assertion.
Dhubri divisional forest officer (DFO), Biswajit Roy, experienced alleged Mr Sharma attempted to extort Rs 8 lakh from him on the basis of fabricated information with regards to his involvement in a cattle smuggling syndicate.
The Assam Police have handed over the situation to the state Felony Investigation Section.
