12-hr Barak bandh

By Staff Correspondent

SILCHAR, Nov 6 - The All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students� Association (ACKHSA) on Tuesday called for a 12-hour Barak Valley bandh on November 7 in protest against the recent killing of a resident of Cachar district in Mizoram.

Rupam Nandi Purakayastha, the student body�s adviser, told reporters at a press conference here that the bandh will be from 5 am to 5 pm. �This bandh is being called protesting the attempts made by the Mizos to encroach upon Assam territory and the killing of a person from Cachar in the neighbouring State.�

He further claimed that China and other agencies are adding fuel to the tension along the Assam-Mizoram border and �a conspiracy is being hatched to fuel unrest in Assam�.

The student leader has urged upon the Centre to impose the President�s Rule in the border areas and also pressed for involving the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the recent incidents at the inter-state border in Lailapur.

Meanwhile, the Cachar district administration has beefed up security arrangements across the district ahead of the bandh call.
