There has been slight improvement in the health of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi.
Gogoi is currently lodged in Guwahati Central Jail after he was arrested in December during the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) movement.
He has been suffering from severe backache, urology problem and several other ailments for over a week now.
KMSS joint secretary Mukut Deka said the health condition of Gogoi has been improving steadily.
Deka said he could not even meet his visitors in jail for two days as he was not in a condition to get up from bed.
Gogoi’s wife Gitashree Tamuly moved the NIA Special Court here a few days back with a petition seeking medical treatment for the KMSS leader.
Recently, two human rights activists – Babloo Loitongbam and Henri Tiphagne – moved the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the deteriorating health condition of Gogoi and sought immediate intervention.
