Guwahati: The Assam government has launched a verbal attack on anti-corruption activist Akhil Gogoi, with Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi alleging Akhil is linked to ULFA.

Akhil Gogoi's supporters have said that they will file a defamation suit against the Chief Minister.

Akhil Gogoi was last week arrested in Guwahati, following violent protests led by him that claimed three lives.
The authorities imposed Section 144 CrPC across Guwahati soon after his arrest, to prevent any untoward incident.
A protest rally led by Akhil Gogoi in Dispur turned violent last week, during which at least three people, including a nine-year-old child, died in police action.
The incident happened in Dispur near the state secretariat when activist Akhil Gogoi was leading a protest against the eviction drive by the Assam government.
The police had to resort to tear-gas shells to disperse the crowd. Five journalists, among others were injured in the clashes.
