The prime accused has been identified as Alauddin and the police have detained him for setting ablaze the Batadrava police station.

A team of Nagaon police arrived at Darrang on May 26 following which they launched a massive manhunt with the help of Dhula police to capture Alauddin.

The accused tried to evade but the police were able to catch him from the Mousida area under Dhula police station in Darrang district after chasing him for around six kilometres.

However, reports stated that this was not the first offence committed by Alauddin and he has had a track record of committing offences in the past.
