Covid-19 outbreak: Assam MLA 'booked for sedition', arrested

Apr 07, 2020 18:56 IST

An opposition MLA in Assam was arrested, after he was booked for sedition, for alleged controversial comments about the situations of quarantine facilities and hospitals for coronavirus patients in the state. According to the police, in an audio clip, purportedly of the MLA and another person, the MLA Aminul Islam had allegedly said that the coronavirus quarantine centres in Assam are "dangerous and worse than detention centres" meant for illegal migrants. The All India United Democratic Front MLA had earlier accused the Bharatiya Janata Party led government in Assam of "conspiring against Muslims".
