Pressure mounts on govt for action against Mahanta, others

The pressure on the Assam government for action against those indicted in the Justice K N Saikia Commission is mounting day by day.

The Manab Adhikar Sangram Samiti sets a three month deadline for the government to take legal action against former Chief Ministere Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, sitting Asom Gana Parishad MLA and former minister Nurul Hussain, sitting MLAs and surrendered leader Jiten Gogoi, Kushal Duwari and others found guilty of secret killings during the erstwhile Mahanta regime.

On the other hand, All Assam Students Union also joins the cry for action against the secret killers.

The leaders with the powerful students union say they will not remain calm till those people responsible for the extra judicial killings are implicated.

The Tribal Student Union also seeks action against those implicated in the Justice K N Saikia panel.
