On Wednesday, MLA Sherman Ali had been sentenced to judicial custody after being arrested by the Special Vigilance Cell (SVC) of the Chief Minister. The CM’s vigilance cell has previously taken custody of the MLA for five days. 

The Chief Judicial Magistrate court (CJM) was notified by the vigilance cell that Ali was not needed in their custody any longer. Further, the MLA will be sent to the Guwahati central jail, reports The Sentinel Assam. 

Earlier this month, Sherman Ali was by the Assam police for his controversial statements on eight Assamese youths, who were killed in February 1983 during the Assam Agitation. 

Later, he was also suspended by the Congress party for repeatedly violating party discipline.  

The order issued by the Assam Congress read, “Hon’ble President APCC Sri Bhupen Kumar Borah has suspended Sri Sherman Ali Ahmed MLA, member ACLP from Congress Party with immediate effect for repeatedly violating party discipline.” 

A few days later, the MLA was arrested again by the CM’s Special Vigilance Cell for alleged embezzlement of the MLA fund. 

He was produced before the court and was sentenced to 5-day custody under the Special Vigilance Cell. Sherman Ali Ahmed is a three-time MLA from the Baghbar Assembly constituency in the Barpeta district. 

He was a member of the All India Democratic United Front before he contested on Congress tickets in 2016 and 2021.
