Silchar: Two Persons Earlier Arrested For Defacing Assamese Hoarding Granted Bail By Court
The two persons who were members of All Bengali Students Youth Organisation were granted bail by the court of the Cheif Judicial Magistrate of Cachar on Wednesday.
Silchar: On Wednesday, the two members of the All Bengali Students Youth Organisation (ABSYO), who were previously arrested for allegedly smearing black in an Assamese hoarding put up by the government, has been granted bail by the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Cachar.
According to the defence lawyer of the two accused, Raju Deb and Samar Das were granted bail by the court as the police could not provide proper evidence against them.
Several government hoardings in Silchar that were written in the Assamese language were discovered to be smeared in black ink by alleged members of the All Bengali Students Youth Organisation (ABSYO) and the Barak Democratic Youth Front (BDYF).
This incident was received with much criticism from the general public and several organisations who demanded that strict action be taken against the culprits.
The Cachar police also summoned BDYF chief and founder Pradip Dutta for questioning. Dutta denied all allegations and revealed that they had informed the police of their plans to protest in the same venue. However, the hoardings were defaced by some miscreants without his consent before he arrived at the scene.
Notably, the miscreants were against the Assamese hoarding in the Barak Valley as their official language is Bengali.
Interestingly, an FR has also been filed against Jal Jeevan Abhiyan chairman for not taking into consideration the official language of the Barak Valley and publishing the advertisement only in the Assamese language.
