GUWAHATI: An FIR has been lodged at Dibrugarh Police Station in Assam against Garga Chaterjee, a resident of Kolkata for insulting Sukapha, founder of Ahom kingdom. In a series of tweets, Chaterjee called the great Ahom king as Chinese invader and questioned Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal for celebrating ‘Asom Divas’ which is in commemoration of Chaolung Sukapha.
Following his offensive remarks, Bhaskar Gogoi, a resident of Dibrugarh lodged an FIR on Thursday.
“I demand strict punishment against him. The Assam Government should write to Twitter to suspend his account,” Gogoi said.
“These tweets coming in the wake of tense border standoff in Ladakh and general antagonism against Chinese government at large, might lead to targeting of Assamese people in rest of India,” Gogoi stated in his FIR.
