Fresh controversy over Jhankar Saikia death

By Correspondent

DIPHU, July 7 � A fresh controversy has surfaced relating to the death of Jhankar Saikia as an FIR was addressed to Karbi Anglong superintendent of police on July 2 against Kishor Choudhury, a resident of the town, accusing him of making provocative statement to media �inciting civil unrest�.

The FIR was lodged just after the protest rally organized by AASU and several other organizations against the barbaric assault on Jhankar Saikia and his lawyer father Haren Saikia, which resulted in the death of the former.

In his complaint Longkiri Timung, son of Borsing Timung of Diphu, quoting sources of video clips aired on July 2 mentioned that Kishor Choudhury, a local leader, had stated that �a group of unruly people remains present in and around Diphu market and creates nuisance targeting people around at the slightst pretext.� The police knew about their presence and activities but remained mute spectators, Choudhury had said, adding, his people would retaliate with violence.

The FIR alleged that Choudhury�s statement created a sense of insecurity among the people as he stated that �Karbi Anglong may boil due to the barbaric act meted out on Jhankar Saikia�. The complainant alleged that Choudhury�s statement incited the unruly elements to indulge in the untoward incident during the rally of July 2.

When contacted, Choudhury said, �the allegation made against me is totally baseless... I expressed my view regarding the incident as a conscious citizen... whatever I said has got the wrong impression about my actual intention...�

Meanwhile, police has arrested nine people for their alleged involvement in the attack on late Jhankar Saikia. Bokajan District Demand Committee (BDDC) has called for a 24-hour Karbi Anglong bandh beginning from 5 am of July 9 in protest against the killing of Jhankar Saikia.

�We demand arrest of the police officials involved in murder of Jhankar Saikia and their dismissal from service,� said Niranjan Karmakar, general secretary of the BDDC.
