Guwahati, Feb 20, 2020 –

Sedition accused Sharjeel Imam was brought to Guwahati on Thursday evening, where a court sent him to four-day police custody.

On Wednesday, the JNU student was handed over to an Assam police team by the Patiala House Court.

Imam was brought from Delhi under heavy police escort, and taken to the MMCH for a health examination soon after his arrival.

He was then presented before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup court. After a hearing, the court ordered four-day police remand or him.

Imam was arrested on January 28 from his home town Jahanabad in Bihar by Delhi Police for allegedly making the controversial “cut off Assam” statement, leading to sedition charges.

Imam was booked for sedition by the police on January 26 after a video of his Assam comment shot on January 25 in Delhi went viral on social media.

Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Uttar Pradesh, besides Delhi Police, had also registered cases against Imam under various sections, including sedition.

Imam was on Tuesday sent to 14-day judicial custody in connection with the violence which erupted in Jamia Mallia Islamia in the national capital on December 15 last year.

Protests against the newly-enacted Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) had turned violent on December 15 near Delhi’s Jamia Nagar. Several buses were set on fire during the violence in which both the police and the protesters sustained injuries.

Delhi Police have named him as an instigator in the chargesheet filed in the case.  (Agency)
