SILAPATHAR, June 27 - The 12-hour bandh in Dhemaji-Lakhimpur districts called by the Indian Youth Congress, Lakhimpur Lok Sabha committee in association with Jonai Youth Congress Committee, passed off peacefully here today. During the bandh, shops, vehicles, financial institutions remained closed at Silapathar and its adjoining areas. The bandh was called in protest against the killing of Hiranya Doley, a Congress leader.

It may be mentioned here that Hiranya Doley was shot dead by unidentified miscreants on Saturday midnight at Dekapam under Dheamji district.

The Indian Youth Congress has condemned the incident and urged the State government to institute a proper investigation to unearth the facts behind the killing.

Dhemaji district police have arrested three persons, who are suspected to be involved with a Mising insurgent group, Liberal Democratic Council of Mising Land (LCDML). Sources maintained that the LCDML might have been involved in the killing of Hiranya Doley.

DHEMAJI: The normal life in Dhemaji town and its adjacent areas were affected by the 12-hour Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts bandh today called by the Asam Pradesh Youth Congress in protest against the killing of Congress leader Hiranya Doley on Saturday night by unidentified miscreants at Jonai, and Lakhimpur businessman Guljar Khan on June 21 last by some unknown miscreants.

All the shops, markets and business establishments including banks and educational institutions remained closed in Dhemaji town during the bandh period. Likewise, no four-wheeler was seen plying in Dhemaji town and in the surrounding areas during the bandh. No untoward incident has been reported during the bandh.

JONAI: The 12-hour Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts bandh called by Youth Congress Committees received a partial response and passed off peacefully in Jonai subdivision.

Banks, shops and business establishments in Jonai bazaar and Jonai-Ruksin remained closed during the bandh. Apart from some private vehicles plying to and fro, passenger vehicles were off the roads and attendance in the government offices was thin. Of course, educational institutions functioned normally during the bandh as the school and college students were exempted from the bandh.

The bandh call was given in protest against the killing of businessman Guljar Khan at Laluk and Congress leader Hiranya Doley at Jonai, who were shot dead by unidentified miscreants on June 21 and 24 last respectively.

A group of Youth Congress members, who had positioned themselves on the National Highway-15 at Jonai and Ruksin in the morning, resisted vehicular movement along the road. The police later picked up ten of them and detained them at Jonai police station for the day.

No untoward incident during the bandh hours has been reported from any part of the subdivision.

Meanwhile, the police yesterday arrested three persons, including, Ranjana Pait Doley of Jonai Lakhi-Nepalibasti, Robin Kumbang and Bipul Doley of Dekapam in connection with the murder of Hiranya Doley of Dekapam (case no. 13/2017, U/S-448/302/ 34 IPC and R/W sections-25(1)(A)/27 of Arms Act). They were produced before the Subdivisional Judicial Magistrate at Jonai today. The trio has been remanded to two-day police custody.
