Govt soon to take action against Mahanta, others

The Assam Government will soon initiate legal action against former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta along with those indicted by the K N Saikia Commission in the extra judicial killings during the erstwhile AGP-led government.

Addressing a crowded press conference here on Friday, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi says the government will set up a committee of legal experts from out side to seek their opinion to take legal action against these indicted persons.

Notably, Mr Gogoi on Thursday tabled the Justice K N Saikia Commission report along with the J N Sarma report which indicted Mr Mahanta, then minister now sitting MLA from Hajo Nurul Hussain and a few surrendered ULFA leaders.

It may be noted that after filing the secret killing reports, the government said there will soon be action against those responsible for this condemnable act. Details are awaited.
