Amid the widespread agitation against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), an All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) leader is suspected to have joined the insurgent group ULFA-I in Upper Assam’s Tinsukia district.

As per initial reports, the students’ union leader Biju Gogoi has been missing since January 3rd, 2020.
