TURA, April 10 � The All Assam Muslim Students Union (AAMSU) Dhubri, Assam, will meet Meghalaya Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma in Shillong tomorrow to seek justice for the 14 labourers who apparently died of food poisoning.

The AAMSU has claimed foul play in the deaths and went on to contest that all the 14 who died that day bore signs of physical torture. Further, the AAMSU demanded a CBI enquiry into the �pre-planned� murders while also demanding Rs 10 lakh each for the kin of those �killed� as compensation.

The fourteen labourers belonged to Dhubri district which was shut down yesterday in protest against the alleged killings. The labourers apparently died on Sunday and their bodies discovered the next day in Saipung village in East Jaintia Hills. �We will be meeting the Chief Minister tomorrow to seek justice for the 14 workers who were �killed� in East Jaintia Hills.

�Even if they died of food poisoning, they were force-fed as can be seen from the torture marks on their bodies. We will be providing the CM information on what we have�, said AAMSU president of Dhubri district unit, Ghulam Mustafa Islam. �From the injury marks on the bodies, it is apparent that they were beaten up and tortured, before being forced to eat the fruit. One person had an ear missing, another had his teeth broken, one more had his nose completely broken, while in one case, a wound that seems to come from a knife was found. This is a case of pre planned murder�, said Islam.

The AAMSU team has asked for the strictest punishment to those who were behind the planned murders, following the findings of the CBI. �We also want an assurance from the Assam Government that the lives of those working in Meghalaya will be protected following a consultation with Meghalaya�, added Islam over phone from Dhubri.
