GUWAHATI, July 16 � The North East Girl Students Association has expressed deep resentment and anguish on the atrocities committed on a young girl by a group of anti-social elements on the night of July 9 in the city. �The association condemns the incident in strongest words and demands that the culprits should be given exemplary punishment so that such incidents are not repeated in the future,� it said in a statement.
Munmi Dutta, president, NEGSA, said that so far society was worried about the safety of the students/youths of the North-east in the national capital of Delhi and other metropolitan cities �but now such unfortunate incidents were occurring in our own place, which has defamed our society.�
Urging the police administration to be more proactive and prompt in dealing with such incidents, the NEGSA demanded that the district administration conducted surprise checks at various bars and direct the owners to be very strict in enforcing the rules.
�We demand that licences of the bars who fail to comply with the prescribed rules and regulations be cancelled. We have decided to bring to the notice of the Chief Minister the growing incidents of lawlessness and youth unrest, and request him to undertake strong measures to check such happenings,� it added.
