HC rejects MLAs’s bail petition

Guwahati, Apr 3 : The Gauhati High Court today rejected the bail petition of Assam MLAs - Kushal Duowri and Jiten Gogoi - who were accused of vandalising the Kaziranga National Park.

The MLAs were absconding for the past fortnight, sources said adding they moved to the High Court in a bid to procure anticipatory bail but Justice I Ansari rejected the petition.

Both the MLAs, formerly militants, were accused of vandalising the world famous Kaziranga National Park and attacking the rangers for preventing them from fishing inside the park.

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi informed that police would use special task force(STF) to nab the offending MLAs.

”They are hiding. They will be caught eventually. We will not spare them,” he said.
Both the MLAs are Independent and supporting the Congress.
