DERGAON, Feb 18 � Six houses constructed by Naga people on Assam land were completely demolished following the tough stand taken by the Golaghat police. The Nagas had constructed the houses on the area in the possession of Assam.

Led by Golaghat SP PP Singh, the police brought down the houses and freed the area. A group of Naga men had first constructed a house on the land belonging to one Victor Tirki on Monday and later, five more houses were constructed on the land belonging to one Raimon Khalkh of Rajapukhuri village under the �B� sector of the Assam-Nagaland border at Uriumghat.

The Golaghat SP told this correspondent that the situation was under control and no new construction has been reported. The houses allegedly constructed by the Naga people have been completely demolished, he added.

It may be mentioned here that an SSB camp is about 300 metres away from the site where the incident took place. But the SSB personnel allegedly played an indifferent role in this regard. The Golaghat DC and SP are still busy monitoring the happenings in the border areas.

Naga miscreants attacked Assamese people in the area on August 12 and 13 last year and burnt down 726 houses of 16 villages, leaving 18 people dead.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi visited the Uriamghat relief camp and announced a CBI inquiry into the incident. He also assured the villagers of forming a Border Protection Force comprising local youths along with a Border Development Council at an early date. But the announcement has gone in vain as no step has been initiated in this regard by the Government in the last six months.

The Government has also allegedly failed in rehabilitating the affected people as most villagers of six villages namely, No.1 and No. 2 Chainpur, Ratanpur, Romanbasti, Bompur and Rajapukhuri are still living in the camps.
