After barring Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma from campaigning in the assembly polls for 48 hours, the Election Commission has also ordered the transfer of his brother and Goalpara Superintendent of Police Sushanta Biswa Sarma from the district.

The Election Commission’s order on Friday said that Sarma shall be transferred to some suitable post in the state headquarters and IPS officer Veera Venakata Rakesh Reddy shall be posted with immediate effect as the new Superintendent of Police of Goalpara district, which will go to polls in the third and last phase on April 6.

The order, signed by EC Under-Secretary Love Kush Yadav, also stated that the compliance report shall be furnished to the Commission immediately.
