A 23-year-old wushu player from Maran Raidangia village was jailed for two months for openly supporting ULFA (I) on social media and was released on August 5.
The Charaideo police arrested Chutia on June 17 from her residence in Baidongia, Moranhat, in the Dibrugarh district, for a controversial text she had posted on her Facebook account. She wrote in a comment on social media, i.e., Facebook, ” I will go if I get the link of ULFA; I love ULFA. After this, a case was registered against Pronita.
The distraught parents of Pronita Chutai even appealed to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to ensure her immediate release from jail so that she can participate in the All-Assam Inter-District Senior Wushu Championships scheduled to begin on August 7.
