Why was Guwahati molestation video put on YouTube, ask netizens

Guwahati: Journalist Gaurav Jyoti Neog was arrested here in connection with the July 9 G.S. Road molestation case, police said.

Neog, who worked for channel News Live, had quit after he was accused of instigating the mob harassing the victim, a teenaged girl.

The journalist has been arrested, Additional Superintendent of Police (Operations) Ranjan Bhuyan, who heads the special investigation team probing the case, told IANS.

"Neog has been booked under Section 294 (obscene acts and songs), Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and Section 34 of the IPC," newly-appointed Senior Superintendent of Police (City) A.P. Tiwari told IANS.

Right to Information (RTI) activist Akhil Gogoi had alleged that Neog, who was present during the molestation of a teenage girl by a group of youth outside a pub on the busy G.S. Road, had instigated the crowd to strip the girl in public.

The activist had produced the video footage of the whole incident before the media to prove his allegation and also submitted the footage to Assam police chief Jayanta Narayan Choudhury.

Neog had resigned from the channel following the controversy. The channel's editor-in-chief Atanu Bhuyan had also resigned from the channel later.

However, Amarjyoti Kalita, whom the police have dubbed as the main culprit in the incident, is still at large.
