Taliban in Assam

14 people have been imprisoned by the Assam police for presumably creating pro-Taliban posts on social media. These posts affirmed support for the uncompromising Islamic militant's outfit’s takeover of Afghanistan. Police administrators asserted the accused have been booked under different sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, IT Act and the CrPC. DGP GP Singh tweeted on Saturday, “Assam Police arrested 14 persons for social media posts regarding Taliban activities that have attracted provisions of law of the land.

People are advised to be careful in posts/likes etc on social media platforms to avoid penal action."  Assam Police seized two people each from Kamrup, Dhubri, and Barpeta districts for allegedly sharing “adverse and objectionable” posts aiding the Taliban on social media, said Chief Public Relations Officer Rajib Saikia. One person each was apprehended in Darrang, Cachar, Hailakandi, South Salmara, Hojai and Goalpara districts. A Police officer also said, “We are on alert and monitoring social media for inflammatory posts. Among the arrested persons, one is a student,".
