Victim identifies mastermind of Jaintia Hills attack

By Staff Correspondent

SHILLONG, Nov 24 - One of the victims, Amita Sangma, who was attacked in East Jaintia Hills, today recorded her statement before a magistrate and accused one Nidamon Chulet as the �mastermind� of the attack and demanded his immediate arrest.

Chulet is the working president of the ruling National People�s Party�s (NPP) unit of the Jaintia Hills. He is also the president of the Jaintia Hills Truck Owners� Association.

�Nidamon Chulet is the mastermind of the attack. He led the mob to attack us and he must be arrested as he poses grave danger to our lives if allowed to go free,� Sangma said after deposing before SS Syiemlieh, Additional District Magistrate, East Jaintia Hills at the NEIGRIHMS ICU here.

Sangma and social activist, Agnes Kharshiing, were attacked in East Jaintia Hills on November 8, allegedly by the coal mafia after they were trying to investigate the illegal coal mining business in the region. After regaining consciousness, Sangma managed to get the police to evacuate Kharshiing who was unconscious and seriously injured in the attack.

�Apart from the arrest of Chulet and others involved in the attack, my family and I want protection from the Government as those involved in the attack are all seemingly powerful,� she said.

The magistrate could not record the statement of Kharshiing as she is not in a position to record her statement, according to the doctors. �She (Kharshiing) is recovering, but she is still not in a position to record her statement,� N Topo, NEIGRIHMS medical superintendent, said.

As per Topno, Kharshiing was brought to the hospital with �grievous injuries�, but she has been responding to the treatment at the hospital. But she is still not in a condition to record statements.

�She will require at least another one or two months to recover completely, although she is now much better. There are various departments which are looking after her. Moreover, the security aspect is also being taken care of,� Topno said.

Syiemlieh said that he has recorded the statements of doctors from various departments. He recorded the statement of Sangma for more than two hours at the ICU. He said that he would require at least 15 days before he would be able to submit his report to the District Magistrate.

Syiemlieh is conducting the inquiry as per the orders of the East Jaintia Hills Deputy Magistrate. Syiemlieh said that in due course of his inquiry, he would also try to record Kharshiing�s statement.

Meanwhile, East Jaintia Hills Police have arrested another accused in the case, Showmewell Kyndait, from the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati on Friday.

The accused was trying to flee from the State to Bengaluru, but a police team from East Jaintia Hills managed to nab him after a tip-off. Kyndait is allegedly involved in the illegal coal business in the region and had been absconding after the attack.
