The Special Court of National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Guwahati on Thursday sent RTI activist and Assam peasant leader Akhil Gogoi to 14-day judicial custody. The NIA had produced Akhil Gogoi before the court and sought 10-day more custody which was rejected by the court.
Earlier, he was sent to 10 days NIA custody on 17th December.
The premier investigation agency had arrested Akhil Gogoi under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) amid protests over CAA, and registered a case (no 13/2019) under section 120 (B), 124 (A), 153 (A), 153 (B) of IPC and section 18, 39 of UAPA against him.
The NIA teams reportedly seized files containing documents relating to the NHPC — Mr Gogoi has been vocal against the 2000 MW Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Project on the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border — and other issues. His laptop, identification and bank documents were also seized, his wife Geetashree Tamuly said.
