Assam singer Zubeen Garg on Thursday forgave two youths who had issued a threat message that they will kill him via social media two years back.

While appearing as a witness at the District and Sessions Court in Dibrugarh, Zubeen advised the youths to use social media wisely and not for issuing hatred to the public.

The singer also said that the youths are small boys and are like his brothers and since they had committed a mistake they had been punished by law.

Apart from forgiving the youths, he also extended them an invitation to visit his house.

The two youths, Tultul Baglary alias Kai Khaplang and Mukul Gogoi alias Mukul Ahom Sivasagariya, had posted on Facebook that they will kill Zubeen with a 9mm pistol from a distance of 10 metres.

The threat message was put up on social media ahead of Zubeen’s performance at a Bihu function at Chowkidingee Ground in Dibrugarh.

However, inspite of the chaos that the message created, Zubeen was able to perform at the function without any hassles. Zubeen performed at the function on April 22, 2017.

The police on the next day, that is on April 28, 2017, had lodged a case against the two youths and arrested them.

The advocates of the District and Sessions Court were impatient on taking a selfie with Zubeen after his arrival. After the case was over, the advocates felicitated the singer.
