GAON, July 23: Demanding immediate arrest of all accused in the Amoni gang rape case, hundreds of supporters and workers of Samaguri Mondal BJP blocked the SDC office and also vandalized the Samaguri police station on Thursday.
The protesters even shouted various slogans and insisted that the delay in arrest of the accused was possible only because of indirect political influence of a powerful political leader of the area. They were so furious that they went on rampage. The protesters alleged that among the traced rapists, Abdul Kadir was a close associate of Minister Rokibul Hussain. The protesters demanded immediate arrest of Abdul Kadir. Later, the protesters submitted a memorandum to the Governor of Assam through SDC Samaguri and urged the authorities to arrest all the culprits within hours.
