GUWAHATI, Jan 29 - Members of the State committee of the Communist Party of India (CPI)- Marxist-Leninist (ML) and the Arunachal Agrasan Pratirodh Samiti today took out a procession from the Guwahati Railway Station to the office of the Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Metro), to lodge their protest against the failure of the authorities concerned to initiate steps against those involved in the January 29, 2014 Chauldhowa massacre.
The organisations alleged that though 15 persons were killed by the assailants allegedly from Arunachal Pradesh on that day, besides injuring 12 others, no step against the accused like Nabam Rebia has been taken. Rather Rebia, who has been named in an FIR in this connection, has been made Speaker of the Arunachal Assembly.
They have also alleged that the assurance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a public rally in Biswanath Chariali to initiate steps against those involved in the Chauldhowa massacre, nothing concrete has come out.
The inquiry conducted by the CBI in this case has also been reduced into a farce. The inquiry teams of the CBI have visited Biswanath Chariali on three occasions, but they have not dared to question the 29 accused from Arunachal Pradesh, who have been named by the people of Assam. There are ample reasons to doubt that Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju has stood on the way of the inquiry for which it has not been able to make any headway, said the organisations.
