President�s intervention sought

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 28 � The Coordination Committee of Hindu Bengali Organizations of Assam has moved President Pratibha Patil seeking her intervention in the matter of alleged harassment and humiliation at the Karimganj detention camp (Karimganj Jail) on female arrestees.

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, functionaries of the organization said that the Hindu Bengalees of Assam were suffering from �arbitrary imputation� as foreigners and resultant harassment by the State machinery.

The organization also demanded that the Hindu Bengalees of Assam should be identified as �political sufferers and victims of partition of the two-nation theory� so that they did not have to face unwarranted harassment.

The functionaries said that there were lakhs of D (doubtful) voters in Assam who are deprived of the right to vote for no fault of their own and were often harassed and apprehended on the question of citizenship due to doubt and suspicion. Referring to a particular case involving harassment of a woman arrestee, they called for punishment of the guilty police officials and other officials if the allegations were found to be true.
