Protest Rally at Haflong

21 Mar 2012 - 3:13pm | Anup Biswas

In protest against the kidnapping and brutal killing of Swapan Paul of Langting, the District Public Forum, Haflong orgainised a protest rally at Haflong on Tuesday.

Thousands of people from every walk of life and irrespective of caste, creed and religion took out a procession led by prominent citizens of Haflong from Town Committee field and marched through the Haflong Township to the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Dima Hasao. They also submitted a representation to the Deputy Commissioner, incharge, Sri Khanindra Chowdhury, ADC, Haflong.

The representation maintained that on 29-02-12 one Swapan Paul S/O Lt. Rosoraj Paul of Langting Bazar was called from his house by some miscreants and he was missing for some time and later on his dead body was recovered from a deep jungle at Langting Area on 12-03-12.

This incident has created a Panic situation not only in Langting Area but in the entire Dima Hasao District among Public more particularly among the business community who are earning their livelihood and maintaining their families with the income derived from the small business. It may be mention that there is no big business, house in Dima Hasao District. All are small and retail traders.

The deceased Swapon Paul was an educated unemployed youth. He was running a Xerox machine and was earning a little income to maintain his family. His death has caused a great loss to his family as the family has lost a earning member and there is none to support them financially.

With the surrender of DHD (J) & ceasefire with DHD(N) the law & order situation in the district though apparently seem to be improved, but the brutal killing of Swapan Paul gives a wrong signal in other way. Life & property of common people is not free from danger. Anything may happen to any person at any time. The killing of a young educated boy by calling him from his house shows that the miscreants are moving freely and can do anti- social work freely. Here is a threat for the peace loving people who are spending their days with great anxiety.

Mention may be made of another incident at Hatikhali where another person namely Mr. Dey S/O Narayan Dey was also kidnapped and his where about is not known till date. It is apprehended that he also has met the similar fate of Swapan Paul.

Unless some positive step is taken from his end the incident of the similar nature will increase day by day and it will be difficult for the people to live with safety & security in their life & property in this district.

Therefore, they earnestly approached his good self to extend helping hand to the family of Lt. Swapan Paul and pay ex-gratia grant etc. to support them financially and at the some time you would take positive step with the help of security forces to apprehend the miscreants in killing of Swapan Paul and give examplinary punishment so that such things does not happen in near future.
