GUWAHATI, March 3 � The Dima Hasao Autonomous Council on Thursday condemned the incidents of grenade attack on the residences of its executive members and demanded of the government to investigate into the incidents and nab the culprits behind the acts.
It stated that deteriorating law and order is a hint that the coming Assembly elections would not be peaceful in the hills district and appealed to the authorities concerned not to ignore this development.
Addressing mediapersons in Guwahati, DHAC chairman Depolal Hojai said that since the DHD(J) came to a ceasefire agreement in 2009, the district recorded more than 15 bomb blasts. �But regrettably the authorities concerned including the intelligence agencies have failed to identify the culprits behind these cowardly acts,� said Hojai.
It needs to be mentioned here that the residence of the council�s executive member Subrata Hojai came under grenade attack on the evening of March 2 and this morning a live grenade was recovered from the residence of another Executive Member Mayanon Kemprai.
Hojai said that restoration of peace in the hills district would not be possible if such acts of violence continue.
