Pallav Gopal Jha added, “When we give permission for such events, usually we do the security detailing. Even the Magistrates are present in the committee meetings and we take the necessary measures and discuss with the respective committees in case of any mishap.”
The Deputy Commissioner has further mentioned that in such cases, the police investigate the matter and in some cases, the authorities have to wait so that the situation doesn’t go out of control.

On the other hand, seeking bail for the arrestee, advocate Ajit Buragohain said that the sections were bailable. He mentioned that the first part of IPC 120B is non-bailable and the latter is bailable. The Court agreed with the latter and released the two people who were arrested in the Muharram violence, he added.
