Two persons, accused of assaulting a local student leader in Sonitpur district in northern Assam, have been directed by the Gauhati High Court to render social service by way of cleaning the statue of Kanaklata, a 1942 martyr, in Gohpur town for a period of seven days.

The student leader in his FIR lodged with the Gohpur police station had complained that the two had broken into his house and injured him with a brick after he had mobilized people to protest against their “anti-social activities”. The investigating officer in the case diary said that while it was true that the two bail petitioners were local ruffians, the injury sustained by the complainant was also simple in nature.
Justice Bhuyan, on hearing the bail petition, granted pre-arrest bail to the two accused, but not before directing that in the event of arrest of the two petitioners they shall be released on bail by furnishing a bail bond of Rs 10,000 each with one local surety of like amount to the satisfaction of the arresting authority. The judge also ordered the duo to engage in social service by cleaning the statue of martyr Kanaklata located in the heart of Gohpur town, for a period of 7 days on such date and time as may be fixed by the Investigating Officer.
