Jorhat Police apprehended Dipen Das (42) and recovered a 9MM pistol with 4 rounds of live cartridges from Fancy Ali area at around 9:45 PM on Friday.

Dipen was arrested from an illegal country liquor shop run by two brothers Azad Hussain and Farooq Hussain. Addl SP (Security) Navin Singh informed,” The drug dealer was under our surveillance for about six months but we waited for the right moment to get him red handed”. Police interrogation is on. Dipen was earlier lodged in jail for six months on charges of supplying drugs in the Fancy Ali area.

Notably illegal liquor shops in the Fancy Ali area has grown up like mushroom colonies at the behest of protection from criminals like Dipen Das who hails from Xuwoni Gaon near the river Bhogdoi. Drugs, arms, liquor and other criminal activities have risen considerably between the Xuwoni Gaon, Royal Road Gozpuria and Fancy Ali, thereby taking Jorhat to the name of a city of criminals.
