He was accompanied by Kamrup SP Hitesh Ch. Roy during his visit to the religious institution. Mahanta offered prayers and sought blessings of the almighty.
The Assam DGP said, “Residents of the area have beautifully maintained this place of historical importance. I have visited satras in other places as well, but the Chamaria Satra has been maintained by the locals in a very organised manner. Satras play a pivotal role in serving society. They need to take some necessary steps to attract the youth.”
