Ultras calling shots in North Bank: Padma

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 23 � AGP legislator Padma Hazarika today told the Assembly that NDFB militants were running a parallel government across a large area in the North Bank where the State government and the administration had little presence.

Hazarika also alleged that there was a nexus between the ultras and a section of the police, and demanded a probe into it.

Hazarika said while things improved a little at Biswanath following the creation of a police district, Sonitpur was still bearing the brunt of large-scale extortion and other anti-social activities, with people from all walks of life forced to pay �taxes� to the gun-totting ultras.

�At Chariduar people recently gheraoed the police station for the law-enforcing agency�s failure to act tough on the ultras. The temporary paramilitary camp there is also not yielding any positive result,� he said.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rakibul Hussain assured the House that the State government would do the needful to ensure the rule of law in the North Bank.
