GOSSAIGAON, Aug 26 - The president of the All Assam Minority Students� Union (AAMSU), Rejaul Karim Sarkar, has alleged that the law-and-order situation in the BTC has broken down completely.
Addressing a press conference at the Gossaigaon Press Club on Tuesday, the student leader said that despite there being Governor�s rule in the BTC, three persons have lost their lives. �Minorities living in various parts of the BTC areas are spending sleepless nights. Cases of killings and kidnappings are on the rise, which have become a matter of concern,� he said. Citing an example, he claimed that one Rahim Badsah of Malandubi under Kajigaon Police Station of Kokrajhar district, was killed by miscreants, but police have failed to nab the culprits so far.
The AAMSU also sent a memorandum to the Governor through the SDO (Civil) Gossaigaon urging him to take urgent steps in this regard. It also decided to hold a protest programme tomorrow against the alleged apathy of the BTC administration towards the minority community.
