The development came hours after SP Mishra addressed a press conference in Nagaon, alleging that former students’ leader Kirti Kamal Bora, who was injured in police firing, was found with a drug smuggler.

Based on the recommendations of the one-man inquiry commission probing the incident of police firing on former student leader Bora, the state Home Department on Tuesday directed the DGP to immediately suspend a sub-inspector.

The government also directed the DGP to transfer all members of the Anti-Narcotic Squad, Nagaon, other than SP, out of Nagaon District immediately.

The Assam government on January 23 constituted a one-man-inquiry commission under Addl Secretary Paban Kumar Borthakur to probe the incident of firing by police personnel of the Anti Narcotic Squad at Kacholukhowa Tiniali in Nagaon on January 22.
