A day after the Gauhati High Court ordered NDFB (R) chief Ranjan Daimary to surrender before his interim bail period is over, all the four factions of the organisation demanded his unconditional release on Friday.
Interacting with the media in Kokrajhar NDFB (Progressive) president Gobinda Basumatary said that they have filed a petition seeking Ranjan Daimary’s bail extension.
They said that since the Bodo Accord has been signed already, hence keeping Daimary in jail will be against the Accord.
“If Ranjan Daimary is not released, then we will stage democratic protests,” Basumatary said.
Daimary was granted interim bail on January 24 by the Gauhati High Court (GHC) for taking part in the signing of the Bodo Peace Accord.
The accord was signed on January 27 in New Delhi.
Refusing to extend his bail period on Thursday, the court said Daimary should surrender first and then he can for a fresh bail plea.
The GHC will hear a plea seeking hid bail on February 25.
