NEW DELHI, Nov 25 � Guwahati MP Bijoya Chakravarty on Tuesday called for urgent central intervention to stop targeting of students of North-east living in the national capital.
Moving a Zero Hour Notice, Chakravarty said that targeting of students hailing from the Region has become a trend in Delhi. Killing of the North-eastern people is going on unabated. Last week, within 48 hours, three people of the North-East have been killed. They have been murdered without any cause, she said amidst interruptions.
It is not only that, but molestation and rape has become a trend, targeting those who have come from the North-East. They have become a regular prey in Delhi..., she said.
According to the records of the Delhi Police, more than 600 phone calls are received by these unfortunate people belonging to North Eastern Region. People belonging to Manipur, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh and other North Eastern States have become unfortunate prey.
If the miscreants do this regularly without stopping it, then I feel that some untoward happening might take place in Delhi. So, it is better to curb it by giving stringent punishment to the perpetrators,� Chakravarty said.
