SILCHAR, June 7 - Following the notices sent on May 21, the Cachar district administration carried out a drive on Friday and evicted as many as 82 families and over 400 people from Rajanikhal forest village in Dholai constituency of the district.

Sources in the district administration informed that those evicted were living on the forest land belonging to the government.

�Appropriate notices were sent to the people living on the forest land and sufficient time was allotted to them to vacate the land. The eviction was done to preserve the environment of the reserve forest area. Resources like 11 elephants, 450 security personnel including police, CRPF, BSF, women police force and senior officials of the district administration, forest department and police persons were involved in the eviction drive which was carried out peacefully,� claimed a highly-placed official.

Meanwhile, amidst all the happenings, simmering annoyance among those asked to vacate resonated the surroundings as they claimed demands of granting patta land status. On the other hand, the All India Krishak Sabha Cachar district unit has condemned the eviction move and demanded that the displaced families must be accorded rehabilitation at the earliest.

Radhamadhab College: The All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students� Association (ACKHSA), the Barak Valley-based student body has urged the authorities of Radhamadhab College here to take immediate steps to fill up the post of Assistant Professor in the Department of Education of the college. In a memorandum to Dr PK Sinha, prinicipal of the college, the student body demanded filling up of the post which the ACKHSA cadres said has been lying vacant for nearly a year now.

�The teacher appointed to the post of Assistant Professor has not joined the college and the absence of faculty is affecting the students. We demand that the college authorities should take up the issue with urgency and take necessary steps to fill up the vacancy,� said Rupam Nandi Purakaystha, adviser to the student body. He cautioned that there could be massive protest if the demand is not responded at the earliest.

In response, Dr PK Sinha, principal of the college assured the ACKHSA delegation that the matter would be dealt with priority in the larger interest of the students.

Two arrested: Based on prior information, Cachar police conducted an operation at Lakhipur and apprehended two persons and recovered a consignment of drugs.

Cachar SP Mughdhajyoti Dev Mahanta informed that officer in-charge of Jirighat police station Manoj Rajbongshi had sent information to SDPO Lakhipur and accordingly a naka checking was conducted on the highway.
