Johan Doley, a youth from Silapathar of Dhemaji district, was arrested after a complaint was lodged against him for uploading the biggest Assamese blockbuster ‘Ratnakar’ on YouTube.
Film’s producer-director and leading man Jatin Bora lodged an FIR with the Gitanagar Police Station in Guwahati after the movie flooded online.
Gitanagar police immediately contacted its Silapathar counterpart and Doley was later arrested from his residence based on the FIR.

Doley has been sent to judicial custody.
‘Ratnakar’ was released on October 1, 2019, and went on to become the biggest Assamese blockbuster ever and highest-grossing movie ever in the Assam circuit.
Prior to ‘Ratnakar’, it was Zubeen Garg starrer ‘Kanchanjangha’, which beat ‘Bahubali: The Conclusion’ to become the highest-grossing movie in the Assam circuit.
Apart from Jatin Bora, ‘Ratnakar’ also stars Barsha Rani Bishaya, Nishita Goswami, and Sanjib Hazarika in pivotal roles.
Two songs- ‘Eta Kotha Kowa Na’ and ‘Rati Rati’ became quite popular then and continue to be so even now.
The movie was also criticised by many for lifting the primary storyline and a few scenes and shots from the super-hit Tamil movie ‘Theri‘ starring Vijay, Samantha, and Amy Jones.
