AASU alleges police harassing public because of “free hand'' by CM

Recently the All Assam Students' Union (AASU), the police are persecuting individuals in the state for no reason other than Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has given them freehand.

"The Chief Minister allowed the police in the state a free hand, and now they are persecuting the ordinary man," Sankor Jyoti Baruah, general secretary of the AASU, told the reporters. The cops have even gone so far as to file bogus charges against anyone who questions them." He went on to say that a journalist was beaten by the police in Chirang solely because of this, and that this is a heinous act.

"Strict action against the officers involved in the event is required, and reserve closure will no longer suffice as a response," he added. He said that if the police continue to act in this manner, citizens would be put in danger.

"Over the past several days, it has become apparent that people are being harassed by unruly officers," AASU president Dipanka Nath remarked. Students were assaulted and harassed first in Dibrugarh, then in Nagaon, and most recently in Chirang, where an on-duty journalist was beaten and harassed." People are getting in trouble just for asking questions, he noted, and the Home Department has to be stricter.
