He was arrested by the Special Branch of Darjeeling district.
Dutta was arrested while he was on his way to Assam with his son-in-law. He is presently kept in Panitanky in Siliguri.
Dutta’s son-in-law and son are also with him while he was being arrested. He is currently under interrogation at the immigration center in the border.
