AGARTALA, Dec 26 - The law-and-order situation in Kanchanpur and its adjoining areas is edgy again as the Joint Movement Committee has decided to revive its agitation over the death of one Srikanta Das in alleged police firing during a road blockade at Panisagar.
Calm prevailed in the subdivision after the State Government announced that there was no plan to rehabilitate all the Bru refugees at Kanchanpur. However, following a bandh call given by Tripura People�s Front, a lesser known political outfit, on December 24, the situation is again surcharged.
Meanwhile, reports of North Tripura Police preparing to file cases against activists of the Joint Movement Committee have further aggravated the situation.
Ranjit Nath, president of the Kanchanpur Nagarik Suraksha Samity, along with its general secretary Anup Nath, in a press conference today warned against police atrocities. �If necessary, a bandh call in the whole undivided North district will be given,� they added.
