Arrested Gujarat Congress leader Jignesh Mevani has been produced in the CJM court in Kokrajhar, with the conclusion of 3-day police remand.

As per reports, Congress has hired a senior advocate of the Gauhati High Court who will appeal for Mevani’s bail in the court. Senior Congress leaders, including APCC chief Bhupen Bora, are currently in the court.

It may be mentioned here that Mevani was arrested by a team of Assam Police from the Palanpur Circuit House in Gujarat for his controversial tweet targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier on Thursday, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, while talking to the media about the arrest, had claimed that he was not aware of Mevani’s identity or his arrest.

The Assam state Congress unit, which protested the arrest of the Gujarat legislator who had earlier pledged outside support to the party, termed the arrest as a conspiracy.

Assam Congress chief Bhupen Kumar Borah alleged that it is a conspiracy and “Goonda Giri” by the police.

The Congress leader also accused the BJP government of misusing the state’s police force to deal with a simple tweet.

In his tweet, Mevani had reportedly urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure communal harmony during his recent visit to Gujarat. The tweet was removed later.
