Assam cops arrest J&K man for obscene remarks against martyr’s wife

Acting swiftly on the directive of Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and showing no leniency to any action purported to outrage women’s modesty, the crime branch of Assam police with the help of Jammu & Kashmir police, arrested one Mohammad Abbas Bhat alias Syed Abbass for allegedly making obscene comment on the widow of slain CRPF jawan Sunil Kalita, who was killed in a Maoist attack in Jharkhand recently.

Accused Syed Abbass allegedly made discourteous comment on slain Sunil Kalita’s wife on the Facebook page of a private TV channel while she was paying her tributes and saluting her slain husband during last rites.

In view of this, one Ramen Barua lodged an FIR with Kamalpur Police Station in Assam on June 15.

Accordingly, a case was registered and the officer in charge of Kamalpur PS inspector Mrinal Das was directed to lead a three-member team to Jammu & Kashmir.

The team left for Kashmir on June 17 and the accused was arrested with assistance from Jammu & Kashmir Police, central and state intelligence agencies.

The accused was produced at Damhal Hanji Pora Court in Kulgam district on June 22 and was sent to eight days transit remand to Assam Police team as the accused is being brought to Guwahati by flight via New Delhi.
