NIA files additional charge sheet against jailed Assam MLA Akhil Gogoi

The additional chargesheet comes at a time when the hearing in the case is in its final stages.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday filed an additional chargesheet against independent legislator Akhil Gogoi who has been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, (UAPA) for his alleged role in violent anti-CAA protests and possible links with the Maoist elements.


Gogoi's advocate said the investigating agency has presented a “protected witness”, in the Chandmari case for which they (the NIA) have filed an additional chargesheet in the Special NIA Court here.


“We have prepared an objection, which we will file in the NIA court soon,” the advocate added.


The additional chargesheet comes at a time when the hearing in the case is in its final stages and the NIA court was expected to give its verdict shortly.


Gogoi was cleared of charges in the original Chabua police station case, by the NIA Court last week and the hearing for the Chandmari police station case was on at the same court.
