"We have received three FIRs so far. The Jamiat leader was accused of making provocative statements during a lecture on Monday. The law will take its own course," the DGP told the media in Guwahati.

Madani allegedly said that the situation in Assam will become volatile if names of Muslims were dropped from the NRC.

He allegedly warned that 70 lakh Muslims in Assam will take to the streets in case of injustice against them, accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party government in Assam of "creating a Myanmar-like situation" in the north-eastern state.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had earlier made it clear that his government will strictly deal with those who try to create obstacles in the NRC updation.
