NIA summons Assam journalist over violence related to CAA last year
Stating that he has already discussed the matter with his lawyer, the journalist said he would visit the NIA office and cooperate with the agency.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has sent summons to an Assam journalist seeking his appearance on Friday.
Guwahati-based Manash Jyoti Baruah, who works for a digital media house, said he had received a call from one DR Singh, who identified himself as an Additional SP of the NIA.
Baruah said the person had asked him to visit the NIA’s Sonapur office located on the outskirts of Guwahati at 12 noon on Friday.
"I have been summoned pertaining to violence over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act last year in which a case was registered against (peasants’ leader) Akhil Gogoi," Baruah told this newspaper.
Some people had lost their lives in the violence.
Stating that he has already discussed the matter with his lawyer, Baruah said he would visit the NIA office and cooperate with the agency.
