      Reang people of Hailakandi cry for justice after authorities’ apathy to their plight in the wake of recent murder case


        TNT News | March 29, 2018

        The rape and murder of a 13-yr-old girl by a 23-yr-old youth has created chaos and unrest in Hailakandi district of Assam. However, instead of finding a solution to the problem, social media has been playing a negative role in communalizing the issue. As per reports, the victim belonged to the Reang community and the culprit happens to be a Muslim and this very fact is being used by many to create communal tensions.

        While many people and organizations have demanded strong punishment to the culprit, a group of people have allegedly been trying to create communal tension over the incident.


        Speaking to TNT- The Northeast Today, Tripura Royal Scion and Congress state working president Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma has strongly condemned the act saying, “A rapist has no caste or religion and he is a culprit, no matter what. As a rapist, he poses threat to not only one particular community but to all women and people at large.”

        He also demanded strict punishment for the culprit as well as attention to the cause of Reang people residing in Hailakandi and Patharkandi.

        As per reports, the incident took place at the residence of the victim located in Betsora Purbashree village along the Mizoram border, in Hailakandi district, after the minor girl had just reached back home after school. The accused took the opportunity to enter the house of the tribal girl, considering her parents were at work and, raped her followed by brutally murdering her to conceal his crime. The accused has been identified as Jashim Uddin Borbhuyan.

        Many social organisations also came forward to protest against a section people’s alleged attempt to create communal tension in the district which include- All Assam Student and Youth Organisation , Janashakti Seva Samity and Common People Forum.

        These organisations have submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner of Hailakandi district in order to take proper measures so that no communal tension can disturb the otherwise peaceful district.

        Talking to media persons, the central president of the All Assam Student and Youth Organisation Janun Laskar and Janashakti Seva Samity leader Jahan Uddin was quoted as saying, “The incident of 13-year-old girl’s rape and murder is a worst crime and nobody can support it. So, nobody should see from which community or religion the culprit is belonging to. Culprit is a culprit.”

        The leaders of the protesting organization also appealed to the district administration to take stringent measures against those who are trying to disturb the social harmony among different communities in the district.

            Tripura: Massive irregularities exposed in MGNREGA audit report

              AGARTALA | March 28, 2018

              Large scale irregularity was identified on implementation of MGNREGS in Tripura in an audit report. The report was sent to the centre and action would be initiated shortly, Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Devvarma said here today.

              Speaking to reporters in a press conference here this evening, Devvarma said that report of an audit ordered in the previous Left Front regime was placed before the state legislative assembly today. The audit was ordered by Tripura High Court in 2014.

              “As per order of the High Court, we have sent the audit report to the CAG, the Ministry of Rural Development and have also placed it in the state assembly”, Jishnu said adding that he and his cabinet colleagues were committed to deliver a corruption-free and accountable government.

              “This audit was ordered by the previous government. The report was submitted by the chartered accountant firm which conducted it in December last year. There is no question of revenge here”, the Deputy CM said. He also holds the rural development portfolio.

              Asked about key findings of the audit report, Devvarma said no trace of bills, vouchers and master rolls worth Rs. 140 crores was found on expenditures in different parts of the state. Adjustments from Bishalgarh rural development block alone failed to provide master rolls to verify expenditure of Rs. 16 crore, he added.

              The audit report includes details on expenditure under the centrally sponsored poverty alleviation scheme right from its inception till 2015-16 in the state.

              “Action will be taken as per law against all those who are found involved in irregularities pointed out in the audit report”, Devvarma said. He also raised finger at CID sleuths, who he claimed, had ‘taken’ documents which were essential for auditing.

              “I am not sure if CID was trying to expose the thieves or protect them”, he quipped.
