Baruah was arrested from Gaurisagar area in the Sivasagar district.


Earlier, the Assam Director General of Police G.P. Singh directed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to initiate a probe into this matter. He said that a case under relevant section was registered.

Taking to ‘X’, Singh wrote, “Nip Pratim Baruah (age-31 yrs.), S/O- Sri Haren Baruah, Vill.- Bamun Moran Gaon, PS- Gaurisagar, Dist.- Sivasagar has been picked up for the Facebook post threatening the Hon Minister. The detention is based on substantial evidence.”

“No such threat would be acceptable against elected representatives as it threatens the democratic polity,” he added.

Atul Bora is also the president of BJP’s ally in Assam, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP).

A few days ago, a man posing as a member of the banned ULFA-I announced on social media that the group intended to attack Bora’s home.
