Agonising wait for abducted man�s return

By Correspondent

JONAI, Sept 8 � Reenimai Doley�s eyes can�t hide the agonies of an ill-fated lady though she looks quite safe living with the family men. Left in the lurch by her family men, fate probably could not have dealt a more severe blow to a housewife like her. But enduring the endless tizzy and tear, she is still waiting eagerly for her abducted husband, despite the fact that police are clueless about his existence.

Reenimai recounted the ominous night of July 1, 2005, when armed ULFA men lifted his husband Brikudhar Doley from their home at Natun Jelem village at Jonai town outskirt. She has been passing several sleepless nights embracing an uncertain future along with a couple of boy-child. She said the Ulfa had abducted her innocent husband, who was unaware of either Ulfa insurgency or administrative role, without any reason. The government has failed to trace my abducted husband even though five years has lapsed from the date of incident, she added.

�The Ulfa members, during abduction assured for early release of her husband after an interrogation, but he has not returned till date. Now, I have lost all hopes in life�, a teary broken Reenimai told this correspondent.

�I am not confirming whether my husband is alive or dead. I appeal the Ulfa to release him on humanity and inform me if he has got killed. Now, the family members are upset as they cannot perform the customary rituals against the missing person�, she added.

It is worth mentioning that pro-Ulfa activities were reining in Jonai in 2005 created gloom and terror among the common citizens. The police, following anti insurgency operation gunned down two hardcore Ulfa insurgents near Natun Jelem village on June 22, which has caused the tragedy. In the consequence, the Ulfa physically tortured four innocent villagers in charge of informing the police about their existence therein. They also brutally assaulted the village head Takin Doley, who later succumbed to his injury.

Sources informed that the victim family has appealed the Manav Adhikar Sangram Sommittee (MASS) urging their intervention for releasing abducted Brikudhar, but no action has been reported so far. Local organisations like Kalyankami Mohila Somiti, TMPK (Mising Students�) and Jonai unit of Asom Gana Parishad has also appealed to the Ulfa for information whether Brikudhar was alive or dead.

Police sources here said that no FIR was lodged against Ulfa abduction by the victim�s family. However, police is still clueless about Brikudhar, the sources said.
