Demand for CBI probe into Kaul murder

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 11 � Agitated over the failure of the government and the police in making any headway in the Gangaram Kaul murder case, a forum of 25 organizations lead by Assam Sangrami Chah Shramik Sangha today demanded a CBI inquiry into the murder.

CPI (ML) member and tea garden workers� leader Gangaram Kaul was killed at Panitola in Tinsukia district on March 25, 2013. Alleging a political conspiracy behind the murder, members of the forum today took out a protest rally in Guwahati and organized a public meeting, demanding justice.

The forum also demanded of the State Government to fulfill its promise of handing over the case to the CBI within the next ten days and said that the inquiry should be completed within six months.

�After more than a month of his murder, the police have not arrested a single person in this connection. It is more disheartening to know that despite strong public demand, Assam Government has not sent any formal letter to the CBI to investigate the matter,� said Sokhila Munda, wife of Gangaram Kaul.

�My husband was working for the poor and downtrodden people of the society, including the tea garden labourers. He had raised several prominent issues of such people and spoke against the widespread corruption at the grassroots level. He also took up the issue of social and economic discrimination against the tea garden workers,� she mentioned.

The general meeting was addressed by Subhash Sen of AICCTU, Rubul Sarma of CPI (ML) and Bibek Das of Assam Sangrami Chah Shramik Sangha among others. The organizations associated with the forum are Adivasi Suraksha Committee, Brihattar Asomiya Yuba Mancha, AATSA, All Adivasi Students� Union among others. A memorandum was also submitted to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.
