Padma Hazarika shifted to Delhi

The injured Asom Gana Parishad legislator from Sootea Padma Hazarika has been flown to the Appollo Hospital in New Delhi for better treatment. Earlier on Saturday, he was brought to the city and was admitted to the Dispur Hospital. Mr Hazarika was attacked near his residence on Thursday midnight in Sootea by some unidentified miscreants. The Assam Government denies involvement of any militant outfit in it and has ordered a fast track probe into it. The regional party is demanding the immediate dismissal of the government. Meanwhile, the injured MLA has said the miscreants were known to him. But he said he would disclose their names only after the probe is completed.
